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 an annual special event booking you’d like to renew, please visit Special Events in Parks and Recreation Centres for timeline information.
