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.
The City of Toronto is developing a 20-year plan to guide decision-making and investment in facilities such as community centres, sport fields, pools, ice rinks, and bike/skate parks. Whether you've ever used our facilities or not, we want to hear from you. Attend a town hall meeting in person or online – get details.
