Recreation in Bay Street Corridor

Queens Park is a large oval shaped park located off University Avenue just south of the Ontario Legislative Building. This park is heavily treed and serves as a quiet respite in an otherwise very busy part of the city. There is park footpath and many interesting statues and monuments in this park. Queen’s Park is ideally suited to a quiet stroll, or a reflective moment spent on one of many park benches or a yoga or pilates session. The YMCA at 20 Grosvenor Street is a popular place to get in a workout and features a gymnasium and swimming pool.

The University of Toronto’s Hart House is open to the general public on a membership basis and offers a variety of athletics, arts, and food and living classes. There is also live theatre available to enjoy with a subscription to the Hart House Theatre one of Canada’s oldest theatres. Arthur Hilller, Donald Sutherland, Norman Jewison, Raymond Massey, Lorne Michaels and Wayne and Shuster are just a few of the greats that got their start on the Hart House stage.
