Grandview Area Residents Association 

A lovely snowy winter day, a great sheet of ice, lots and lots of friends and neighbours, young and old, plus hot dogs and hot chocolate were the ingredients for a wonderful afternoon.  Tremendous thanks are due to the amazing contribution of our neighbourhood volunteers.

In a highlight of the afternoon, Gila Martow, MPP for Thornhill, presented an award to Ricardo Mashregi, Chair of GARA,  recognizing the contribution of our annual Family Skate Day to the spirit of the community.

During the summer of 2015, an eyesore becomes a local attraction!  Surely our neighbourhood must be developing a reputation for its outstanding art.  Watch as James Ruddle and his young apprentices, Ben Baker, Quin Ellul, Sarah Ravoth and Amy Yu. create an exciting mural on the western portion of Henderson Bridge..For more information click here

Here you can watch as the students at E.J. Sands P.S. finally have playground ‎equipment built especially for them, funded by the York Regional School Board, parents of E.J. Sands School Council and Section 37 monies from the City of Markham.

Community spirit caring for our parks.  

Thanks to Fiona Blondin, we have captured some of the hard work and fun at the annual Grandview Area parks spring clean-up.  Thank you to  the volunteers, of all ages who helped to take care of our neighbourhood.
