Some folks go around thinking that all city green spaces are much of the same: trees, a lawn of grass, and perhaps an asphalt path or two.
It's really not the size or location that makes a Toronto park a standout, as they're all oases of green in a cement world; they offer an opportunity for rest (shaded park benches instead of plastic bus shelters), relaxation (stretched out on a soft picnic blanket instead of leaning against the nearest brick wall), and of course, exercise!
But to tell you the truth, Eglinton Park is the perfect combination of city and suburbs. Located in Northern Toronto, Eglinton Park is a few short steps from Eglinton Subway Station. This uptown park is perfect for the on-the-go family, and is close to transit, close to single-family homes, and has been well-integrated with urban amenities.
There’s a lot to love about this 9-hectare park, including its proximity to the popular Beltline - just a short walk away. If you have a pooch who loves a good long walk, they are going to adore you for taking them here. We guarantee you'll enjoy yourself as well; particularly at the end of a stressful week, it's the perfect destination to breathe deep and unwind as you enjoy the abundance of life blossoming all around you!
When it comes to city parks, it all comes down to Accessibility and Facilities. Here's what Eglinton Park has to offer!
Lucky for nearby residents, Eglinton Park is hidden right into the heart of the neighbourhood. Blocks of tree-lined residential streets and cul-de-sacs surround it, meaning that thousands have access and it's rather private. But still accessible, as just to the south of the park is Eglinton Ave.
Here's where Eglinton Park ranks many notches above the rest!
The North Toronto Community Memorial Centre is located within the park, so in the winter the family can enjoy the exercise rooms, indoor pool and waterslide, gymnasium, walking track and ice rink.

Very few green spaces uptown can boast about an indoor skating rink, indoor pool, outdoor pool and splash pool! In the summer months, when afternoons can become sweltering, a public pool is the perfect place to cool down. In the spring and fall, you can enjoy the parks two baseball diamonds, soccer fields, playground, there’s something for everyone in the family.
Let's not take our neighbourhood parks for granted! Any green space in the city holds the potential to elevate and improve well-being, improving the quality of life for all who share in it!
