Contributed by Eleanor Matheson – Hi, my name is Eleanor and I have been living in Cabbagetown for 7 years, which is my whole life. Some of the places I like to go are:
The Coffee Shop (Jet Fuel) – It’s just around the block but it feels like it take half and hour to get there with my 2 sisters. I like their chocolate crackle cookies. And steamed milk. And hot chocolate. And lemonade in the summer.
Epicure Shop- I like it because it has a special table just for kids and it is covered in Lego. Sometimes they have fresh samples of cheese.
Wellesley Park- I like it because it is just around the corner and it has a splash pad right beside a playground.
Kibo Sushi – I like it because I like sushi, but it takes forever to get to with 2 sisters and my dad draggine behind me.
Riverdale Farm – I like it because it is free and has lots of animals and you can’t do anything wrong there except put your hand in the cages. In front of the Farm there is a market until early fall.
The Children’s Book Bank – I LOVE the book bank because I like to read a lot lot lot. And it takes children’s books by donation. And every kid who goes there gets to take out a free book but before you take it home it needs to get stamped.
I think kids should live in Cabbagetown because there are so many kids already around. It is home sweet home.
