In an attempt to continue diversifying Toronto and reduce graffiti vandalism, StreetARToronto (also known as StART) in collaboration with Wallnoize had 40 local artists install a series of murals at Ravina Gardens Park over the weekend.

The murals’ theme depicted sporting activities, and the art took place on August 27 and 28 on walls that have been targeted by graffiti vandalism several times. The Ravina Park project was similar to the Leaside Graffiti Murals project that recently took place, bringing together the StART team with Toronto Police Service’s 53 Division to cover up vandalized walls near Sutherland and Eglinton.

Located at 290 Clendenan Avenue, Ravina Gardens is a popular park space with two baseball diamonds and green space serving two nearby schools. Although the majority of the art is complete, an additional installation featuring a First Nations sporting theme – lacrosse – is scheduled for next month.
