DOLA stands for "dogs off leash area."
A park booklet: "Dufferin Grove Park as a neighbourhood commons, 1993 to 2015" is posted
here -- a little history, at the end of an era, with stories, lots of coloured photos, and some short interviews. To get a paper copy, e-mail firstname.lastname@example.org.
The unofficial skateboard park on the rink pad was busy last season.
Skateboarders like to make videos, and there are lots posted by people from Dufferin Grove -- some samples from Gerb Seamon here and here.

But now this website is waking up, and will have current news again. To find out why: September 2018 newsletter
