JULIUS DEUTSCH PARK commemorates social justice activist

JULIUS DEUTSCH spent much of his working life bringing unionists and environmentalists together to create green jobs.  He’s remembered by folks in the Cecil Street and Huron neighbourhood, for a charming green outdoor gym, with a play area for children, a rowing machine, butterfly weight machine, eliptical trainer and a set of Tai Chi spinners.  It’s one of several similar parks in the city.  40 Cecil Street @ Huron.

  1. I can’t believe it! Exercise equipment in a public park. How did the City Legal Department ever allow this to happen? Aren’t they afraid of the City being sued for injuries people incur while using the equipment? After all, they forced the removal of all wooden play equipment from parks due to the risk of splinters in little fingers and behinds. Of course these public work-out stations are all over China (seen them in Beijing, Qingdao, and elsewhere), but then China is a progressive country.
