Are there nice parks in Cedarvale?
Samantha and Cheryl will tell you that Cedarvale park is one of the most popular and well known parks in Toronto.
This district park is a hub for outdoor activity. A visit to Cedarvale Park reveals four outdoor tennis courts, two-sport fields and a baseball diamond. For a little fun on a sunny summer day, there is a splash pad and playground for children to enjoy. Park visitors can make use of the outdoor fitness equipment installed at the south end of the ravine near Heath Street. In the colder weather, visitors can choose to skate outside on the artificial ice rink (December through February weather permitting) or skate indoors at the Phil White Arena.
Walk the paths through the park and ravine to enjoy nature or drop-by to use the Dog Off-Leash Area located east of the arena’s parking lot.
