With Thanksgiving less than a week past, we've been reflecting on the people in our lives for whom we're most grateful. But what about the places we're thankful for? We don't mean a warm bed or comfy couch (although those are top contenders); we're talking about the places in our community - or beyond - that enrich our daily life.
Personally, we love quiet mornings - coffee in hand - watching the dogs run, or taking a peaceful stroll with a best friend and an ice cream cone, or finding shade under a tree and unpacking a bag of drinks and snacks. None of these favourite activities would be possible without Toronto's brilliant parks and green spaces. And some of the best aren't even the most sprawling or as well-known as Trinity Bellwoods and High Park.
We've raved about many of Toronto's lesser know green spaces, including Rennie Park, Sorauren Park, East Lynn Park and Monarch Park! But today we're talking about Stephenson Park! Have you been? Besides the usual lush greenery, benches, picnic tables and drinking fountains, the park's attractions include a ball diamond, playground, and fieldhouse!
There's also a wading pad, fire pit, and a hockey rink in the winter!
And, last but not least, an amazing ping-pong table!
But what's most appealing about Stephenson Park is more than the pleasant swaths of grass or a ball diamond; green spaces like this are the hubs of their neighbourhoods, and play a large role in cultivating a strong sense of community for residents!
61 Stephenson Avenue
Whether you have an hour or an afternoon, spending time in your neighbourhood park - or exploring new parks - is a great way to get some fresh air, soak up some much-needed Vitamin D, and even engage with your community. How enriching would it be to have this green space within walking distance from your home? For the lucky new owner of This Classic Character On Keystone Avenue Near Main And Danforth offered at $789,000, Stephenson Park will be just a hop, skip and a jump away! Dreamy!!
