The Bay Park Community Garden is located in the back field of 775 Progress Avenue (behind Bay Park Baptist Church). 

If you already own gardening gloves, please bring them! Otherwise, supplies will be on hand. 

This special program is partnered with the City of Kingston through the Neighbourhood Climate Action Champions Program.
