Plenty of parks and green space surround! Allan Gardens is a popular gathering spot and attracts thousands of visitors with the glass conservatory, and the numerous weddings, along with a playground for kids and a big off-leash dog park.
Nearby Moss Park includes a sports field, a baseball diamond, and two tennis courts. Within Moss Park are the John Innes Community Recreation Centre, and the Moss Park Arena for skating and hockey. Moss Park is in the midst of being studied and planned for revitalization and the City has partnered with the 519 Community Centre. The proposed redevelopment has three goals: serve local communities; enhance existing programs, services and public spaces; and create a welcoming, accessible space for everyone who uses Moss Park. It is part of TOcore - The City of Toronto's Downtown Plan, a 25-year vision that sets the direction for the city centre as the cultural, civic, retail and economic heart of Toronto. Focused on community facilities and parks, the potential redevelopment of Moss Park would be a welcome addition to the neighbourhood.
