Toronto’s parks and recreation facilities are our common grounds – the spaces where we come together as a community to meet, celebrate and to build a healthier, more welcoming city.

Booking our facilities for ongoing or seasonal use is completed annually and includes an allocation process that aims to balance the use of our shared spaces.

If you have booked for seasonal use before, complete the Seasonal Booking Form. If you are a new user, please call us at 416-392-8188.

Baseball diamonds, sports fields and stadiums are available for permitting to various private or commercial groups, clubs, community organizations and individuals.

The City of Toronto operates 121 indoor and outdoor ice pads that are available for rental for your team, league or group.

Indoor Prime time ice is allocated on a priority basis according to group classifications; the Ice Allocation Policy defines this process, while the 2018-2019 City-wide Ice Allocation Work Plan outlines the milestones and dates for the process. The total time allocated to a group in a single season and the method by which the time is calculated can be found in the 2018-2019 Ice Allocation Entitlements.

After seasonal permits have been issued additional ice time may become available. You can search for available ice time online during the season. You can also use Additional Ice time for Sale listings for both seasonal and spot booking.
