Support locals to green under-served local parks
I lived next to Tatlow Park for many years (2nd ave at Macdonald). It's a stunning little park, with a daylighted stream, but it's actually pretty bare and has so much more potential to be beautiful. The city could provide matching grants if a local community self-organized to plant more native plants to further naturalize the park, or it could provide these plants at cost from a city-run nursury, and provide technical support to how to green the park in a way that balanced the needs of all residents. Our parks are beautiful but some could use more love, and more nature, and to share the burden with residents, much like the traffic circles and bulges are joint efforts.
