Recreation in Thorncrest Village
The Thorncrest Homeowners Association is the only homeowners association in Toronto that owns and operates its own clubhouse and recreational facilities. The Thorncrest clubhouse, located at 35 Thorncrest Road, hosts many neighbourhood social events including family barbecues, bridge, theme dinners and a children's christmas show. There is also a family "Fun Day" that coincides with a pool opening party. This annual event features pony rides, a bake sale, carnival food, a clown and games.
The Thorncrest community facilities include a 25 metre outdoor swimming pool which is a popular cooling-off spot in the summertime. Swim lessons from qualified instructors are offered at this site. The Thorncrest Homeowners Association also operates two tennis courts and a children's playground that are adjacent to the clubhouse and pool. The tennis courts are busy all summer with lessons, clinics, leagues, round robins and spring and fall tournaments.
