Play Mobile is a City of Toronto sport development initiative, in partnership with Nike, designed to engage children, youth, families and adults in sports across Toronto. Three brightly-decorated vans (designed by Toronto artist Vivian Rosas) are touring the city to provide fun outdoor opportunities for Toronto residents to try a variety of sports.

Play Mobile vans will be visiting locations across the city, including parks and outdoor spaces in Neighbourhood Improvement Areas.

Play Mobile resumed on May 6, 2023 and will continue throughout the spring. Schedules are weather dependent and may change without notice.
