Trace Manes is home to the Leaside Tennis Club and also has a playground, outdoor ice rink and baseball diamond with the Leaside Public Library right next door off McRae Drive. Cupping the area from north to south-east is a stunning green belt popular with joggers, which includes Sunnybrook Park, Wilmot Creek Park, and the Moore Park ravine. Excellent recreational facilities include the Leaside Memorial Community Gardens, a recreational complex with an indoor ice arena and pool, curling rink & auditorium.
