City of Toronto reopens services and amenities for residents

The City of Toronto is safely and gradually opening a number of services and amenities for residents to enjoy, following the Province of Ontario’s orders and guidance from Toronto’s Medical Officer of Health. Residents are encouraged to head outside in their local neighbourhood for fresh air and exercise to support physical and mental well-being, but are reminded to adhere to public health advice to practise physical distancing or wear a face covering or non-medical mask to protect others when in settings where physical distancing cannot be maintained.

Below is a guide to which City services and amenities are open and which remain closed:

Parks and amenities

City park amenities re-opening include:

  • picnic shelters
  • soccer and multi-use outdoor fields, including running tracks
  • baseball diamonds and basketball courts

  • BMX locations and skateboard parks
  • City-run golf courses and disc golf locations
  • ravine green spaces, beaches, trails and boardwalks for walking, running or biking

If a resident arrives at an amenity that is crowded, they are advised to wait until there is enough space to physically distance or return at another time. No team sports or organized group sports are permitted at this time.
