Another one of those spots that's still a bit difficult to find amongst waterfront development, Corktown Common is one of our new favourite parks in the city.
It feels like some of the park developments in New York City, and while you're surrounded by urban development going up in Corktown in prep for the Pan Am Games, the park offer lush greenery, shade, small walking trails perfect for a leisurely walk with the stroller, and a really amazing playground and splashpad. The splashpad in particular is exactly what you think of when you think modern urban playspace.
How to get there: At the bottom of Lower River Street, just south of King. There's street parking on the side streets around, you'll probably have most luck on King St. TTC service along King/Queen – the road work in the area is starting to clear up so check TTC for diversions/best options
Once you're on River, keep walking past the cool monkey bar sculptures then cross the street into the park. Signage isn't great, but you'll figure it out once you're there.
