Event Details

 

If you're a park person, you need to be at the 3rd Annual Toronto Park Summit. The Summit brings park advocates, city staff, and experts together with community groups, city councillors, and concerned Torontonians to network, brainstorm, and work together to build momentum for better parks in Toronto. Our theme for this year’s Summit is Good Parks for All Neighborhoods and our speakers and activities will focus on ideas and inspiration for ensuring that no matter where you live in Toronto, you have access to a great park. Parks are a vital part of any healthy community and it is important that all neighborhoods have the resources they need to generate and support a thriving park.
