Fergy Brown Park, named after a former York mayor, was agricultural till 1965. It has a rich Indigenous history as the Carrying Place Trail, almost hosted the Richview expressway, and now is being threatened by the Crosstown extension which is going to destroy a large amount of the natural section of the park. Local Indigenous people feel their rights to be consulted about a major heritage site are being ignored.
