Spring park events are blossoming back to life across Toronto. The thaw doesn’t just mean getting the park spruced up for its “big moment” in the summer (although there’s some of that). The spring has its own special charms that are featured in a number of events that were submitted by park groups. Don’t forget to submit yours!

Explore the Wilderness Outside Your Window

On Sunday April 10, Jason Ramsay-Brown, author of Toronto’s Ravines and Urban Forests, will give a free talk on the ways you can get involved in improving Toronto’s amazing tapestry of ravines and urban forests. Find out more at High Park Nature. 

Guild Your Park

On Saturday April 16, join in an afternoon celebration of what’s ahead at Guild Park in 2016. There will be important announcements about the events and activities taking place this year at Guild Park, plus live music, special guests, park updates and a silent auction. Be sure to RSVP on Facebook.

Time for Spring Cleaning

Sunday April 17, head over to Colonel Sam Smith Park to help clear away the garbage in the park and along the shoreline. This event is FREE but registration is required.  

Did Someone Say Frolic?

On Sunday April 17, explore two largely lost tributaries of the East Don River in Wigmore and Anewen ravines. This ancient forested valley, carved into prehistoric Lake Iroquois’ shoreline, is a reminder, tantalizing of the ravine system we wish to preserve and cautionary of the urban stresses we wish to neutralize. To join the free Spring Frolic in Ravines, rain or shine.
