Park
“One of Toronto's most popular parks and it gets pretty busy in the summer. There are baseball diamonds, dog parks, bike paths and public washrooms are available for the better part of the day. Come down for a picnic and enjoy relaxing in the grass after a long day of shopping along Queen St. During the summer there is a farmer's market every Tuesday from 3-7. Here you can get pre-made food, local cheeses and produce, free range meat to cook your own meal and organic wine/ciders (drinking in public is still illegal so if you are going to do so, be discreet).”
