Thank goodness for green space! Toronto's parks and parkettes may not look very lush right now, but in a month they'll be bursting with life!!
The integration of the natural world into our urban landscape is perhaps where Toronto shines brightest as a city; the extensive network of green spaces is truly remarkable, improving quality of life for all Torontonians! Preserved and cultivated across the city, these treasured slices of fresh growth and vegetation provide a multitude of invaluable mental, physical, and social health benefits for we urban dwellers! From outdoor recreation and community congregation to cleaning the air and absorbing storm water run-off, parks are essential pieces of a functioning, healthy city.
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 Withrow Park, where many streets culminate in the centre of Prime Riverdale! Have you been?
Withrow Park is one of downtown's more sizeable parks, comprising 8 hectares. Beyond the lush greenery, benches, picnic tables and drinking fountains, the park's attractions include two ball diamonds, a multipurpose sports field, two outdoor tennis courts, a volleyball court, a dog off-leash area, a wading pool and a children's playground.
There's even a Withrow Farmer's Market from June to October!
And in the winter, an outdoor ice rink!
725 Logan Ave,
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 fresh - and rare-to market - Heavenly Sanctuary In A Converted Riverdale Church offered at $949,000, Withrow Park will be just a hop, skip and a jump away! Dreamy!!
