Parks, Forestry & Recreation
A city within a park
Toronto has more than 1,600 public parks 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.
2014 was a busy year for Parks, Forestry and Recreation and our growing list of community, philanthropic and corporate partners who are giving back to the City's treasured green spaces and recreation amenities. Here's a round-up of some of the many joint successes from the past year. Learn about 2015 partnership opportunities.
City of Toronto Golf Value Packs offer 12 weekday adult rounds for the price of 10 - that's two free adult rounds! The best part is... the rounds can be shared with family and friends. Some terms and conditions apply.
2015 Value Packs can be purchased on weekdays at the Don Valley Golf Course. You'll also find them at our booth at the Golf and Travel Show (February 20 - 22). For information email firstname.lastname@example.org
Thirsty? Well, we've got water for you! With the introduction of the City's Water Bottle Ban, we've committed to increasing water access in parks. Since 2012, we've installed water bottle fillers in 19 City parks locations.
