Parks, Forestry & Recreation
The City of Toronto has many beautiful sites that can be permitted for picnics, social gatherings, wedding ceremonies and photography, and much more. These sites include indoor conservatories and outdoor gardens. Also, Commercial Dog Walker Permits are available for individuals to walk 4 to 6 dogs on a commercial basis in City parks.
Parks, Forestry & Recreation is excited to open our outdoor sports facilities for the season! Weather permitting, diamonds are scheduled to open May 1, and all sports fields are scheduled to open May 14, 2016. Please check our website for the status of your sports facility.
Coming soon you'll be able to book stadiums online in addition to ice rinks! Search, book a permit, and pay for last minute facility bookings online.
