About Trinity Bellwoods Park

Trinity Bellwoods Park is a 14.6 hectare (36 acre) public park operated by the City of Toronto.  It is the largest park in the downtown core and has a canopy of over 400 trees of old and young growth. The park extends from the Trinity gates on Queen Street West at Strachan Avenue at the south and Dundas Street West to the north. East side is bordered by Gorevale Avenue, on the west Crawford Street until it reaches the old buried Crawford Street bridge where a small ‘handle’ juts out further west to Shaw Street.  See map (link to it) and the Wikipedia page has some interesting info.

The park features three ball diamonds, eight tennis courts, two volleyball courts, a dog off-leash area, picnic areas, slackline poles, a children’s wading pool, playground, an outdoor artificial ice rink which is also used in off season for pickle ball and/or ball hockey. There is the seasonal Trinity Bellwoods Farmers’ Market and community green house.  At the south-west section of the park is the Trinity Community Recreation Centre located (155 Crawford Street) which has an indoor pool and hosts the many recreational programs run by the City. 

During the good weather months, the park is a popular local and international destination for meeting up, hanging out, picnics, friendly outdoor activities and special events (sanction and rogue).  In the winter tobogganing, rink skating and cross-country skiing occur. Dedicated tennis players have been known to clear the snow off the courts to extend their playing season.

Below is a map of park amenities which you can use to reference meet ups and getting permits for picnic areas. Thank you to Emily MacLennan for volunteering to make this!
