I was unaware that there were sarced mounds in high park untill I met members of Taiaiako'n Historical Preservation Society last year. The society has been working hard for years to protect these sacred spaces from destruction by those misusing high park(BMXers in particular).

On May 13th 2011 they started reconstructing the mounds in co-operation with city and park officials.

High park represents an eco-system(the black oak Savannah) which has been reduced to something like 0.02% of it's former extent. So the little bit of it that we have left being biked on is a big deal. Hopefully their concern for the environment will continue to gain support in the broader Toronto community.
