Regarding the proposed Churchill Fields path - I think that that one has fallen through twice. Both times due to worries of near-neighbours of the park worried about increased crime and loitering teenagers, as I recall.

In years past, neighbours in the same houses fought (unsuccessfully) the addition of playing fields to Churchill Fields. Even the Timmy's (no. 4 - now perhaps the second oldest) at King and South Oval was opposed by residents when it was planned*.

Westdale's reputation for stick-in-the-muddery is not without ground.

* There were fears that the Tim Hortons would attract "a rough element." As anyone who has walked by that Timmie's can tell you, they were in fact quite right :)
