Friends of Smythe Park acknowledges that the park is on the traditional territory of many nations including the Mississaugas of the Credit, the Anishnabeg, the Chippewa, the Haudenosaunee and the Wendat peoples and the area is now home to many diverse First Nations, Inuit and M├ętis peoples. We also acknowledge that Toronto is covered by Treaty 13 signed with the Mississaugas of the Credit, and the Williams Treaties signed with multiple Mississaugas and Chippewa bands.

Friends of Smythe Park are a group of people who love this park and have witnessed a great decline in its condition. This is primarily due to Black Creek flooding as well as road run off. Maintenance of the ponds is crucial for the abundant wildlife however they have been left unattended, and particularly after a flood, the wildlife die off or are washed away. We intend to help bring Smythe Park back to its former beauty.
