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 peacful 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.
But today we're talking about Coleman Park! Have you been? Besides the usual lush greenery, benches, picnic tables and drinking fountain, the park's attractions include:
Two Outdoor Tennis Courts
Stone Platform For Table Tennis
Space For Community Events And Gatherings
There are some upcoming features to be added including a splash pad with water sprays and a shaded shelter. Here are the drawigns of the park as it is now and one of the upcoming changes.

But what's most appealing about Coleman Park is more than the pleasant swaths of grass or a tennis court or two; green spaces like this are hubs of their neighbourhoods, and play a large role in cultivating a strong sense of community for residents.

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 Detached Opportunity With Income At Main And Danforth this park is directly across the street!! Dreamy!
