Riverdale Park East

Address: 550 BROADVIEW AVE Map It

This 18 hectare park near Danforth Avenue and Broadview Avenue is popular for winter tobogganing and views of downtown Toronto skyline. Riverdale Park East features two ball diamonds, three multipurpose sports fields, a running track, seven tennis courts, an artificial outdoor ice rink and ball hockey pad, a picnic area and a children's playground. The ice rink features a hockey pad which is also a please pad. There are change rooms for changing into skates. There is a nice playground to the east of the rink. A naturalized area at the north end of the park has many recreational trails ideal for walking. Located at the north entrance to the park on Broadview Avenue is the Riverdale Park East Outdoor Pool.

Riverdale Park East is undergoing a revitalization in the north-east quadrant throughout 2016/2017. While we make improvements to the park, there may be some inconvenience to users accessing the pool, tennis courts, and dogs off-leash area (DOLA). For more details, view our project page. Full closure of the playground and outdoor rink will begin early summer 2016 and will last for the entire duration of the project construction.
