Parks, Forestry & Recreation
A City Within a Park
Toronto has more than 1,500 parks with numerous open spaces and 600 km of trails. The parks system covers 8,000 hectares, or roughly 13% of the city's land area. It includes about 40% of Toronto's natural areas, many of which lie within the ravine system and along the Lake Ontario shoreline. City parks also feature beaches, playgrounds, sports fields, gardens, conservatories, ice rinks, special events and much more for you to enjoy.
Thank you everyone for a wonderful season of Golf. While the weather is still cooperating why not take advantage of our all day twilight fees and try out a different City Golf Course during our final week of 2015? Your last chance for a round at Don Valley, Humber Valley and Tam O'Shanter is Sunday, November 22. We hope to see you again in 2016!
Parks, Forestry and Recreation is developing 20-year Facilities Master Plan. This high level plan will help the City to make strategic decisions on how and where to invest in future park and recreation facilities. Learn more about the Plan and its consultation strategy in this staff report, that was approved by City Council's Executive Committee on October 20, 2015.
