In partnership with City Hall Live, Exhibition Place will be hosting Music in the Park at ExPlace every Wednesday in July. Taking place at 7 PM in Centennial Park, the series will feature a diverse lineup of emerging and established Toronto musicians.
Bring your friends and family, grab a picnic blanket, and enjoy a night of great music under the stars.
Exhibition Place is thrilled to announce their upcoming Beekeeping Workshop at ExPlace – an unforgettable adventure that will excite you!
They are pleased to be working with Toronto Bee Rescue to bring this educational and fun workshop to the residents of Parkdale/Toronto.
Join them on either July 6 or 8 for 2 hours of hands-on fun, including interactive beekeeping on the roof and a Honey Harvest Experience inside Enercare Centre. You’ll get to uncap and spin frames, filter honey, and bottle your very own jars!
Please note there is a $10 dollar sign-up fee – this is a donation, and all money is being donated to CAMH.
Park Pop-Ups are being hosted as part of the City’s community engagement for the final phase of the Wabash Community Recreation Centre design process. You can attend Pop-Ups to review the proposed design and share your feedback:
Pop-Up 1: Sorauren Park – Farmers’ Market
· Monday, June 19, 2023
· 3 to 7 p.m.
Pop-Up 2: Sorauren Park – before the Friends of Sorauren Park movie night
· Saturday, June 24, 2023
· 5 to 9:15 p.m. (The pop-up will end once the Friends of Sorauren Park movie begins)
Ontario Place for All is offering this better idea. It’s an invitation to the Province and the City to make a fresh start, together. People already know what Ontario Place for All are against and now are asking, with good reason, what they are for. They offer this proposal as a way forward … for all.
Their proposal is based on leveraging the Ontario Line at both ends, connecting the Don River Valley to the Lake Ontario Waterfront in a way that links these two major natural features. It will revitalize Ontario Place, would help get affordable housing built and enhance the Ontario Science Centre instead of destroying it.
You can VOTE between June 8 and 13 from 10 a.m. to 7 p.m. at one of these two advance voting locations in Parkdale–High Park Ward: Masaryk-Cowan Community Recreation Centre – 220 Cowan Ave. or Annette Community Recreation Centre – 333 Annette St.

The new public space is a small area that can accommodate some passive activities and provide improved access to the bridge from the existing sidewalk. Design options for the new public space developed to date accommodate opportunities for:
· Seating, lookouts and rest areas
· Plantings and naturalized features
· Cycling amenities including bike parking and a bike repair station
· Enhanced features such as special lighting and paving materials
Public feedback, technical considerations and City policies and guidelines will be considered in City staff recommendations and City Council decisions.
