City of Toronto to open Reflexology Footpath in honour of Jenna K. Morrison
Councillor Ana Bailão (Ward 18 Davenport) and City of Toronto staff will join Jenna Morrison's family and members of the community to honour her life and the opening of a reflexology footpath with a ribbon-cutting ceremony in Dufferin Grove Park.
Date: Saturday, July 26
Time: 2 to 3 p.m., remarks at 2 p.m.
Location: Dufferin Grove Park, 875 Dufferin St. (south of Bloor St. W.)
The footpath is a concrete path embedded with stones of different shapes and sizes that knead your feet as you walk barefoot along it. It was inspired by a similar footpath Morrison saw in a South Korean park. This footpath is believed to be the first of its kind in a public park in Ontario.
Morrison was a loving mother and devoted wife who passed away suddenly in a traffic accident. Her loss has greatly affected her community. The footpath is located in Dufferin Grove Park where Morrison and her family spent many afternoons.
