Recreation in Earlscourt
Earlscourt Park, located along St. Clair Avenue West, is one of Toronto's busiest parks. This thirty-six acre park includes four tennis courts, soccer fields, a baseball diamond and an outdoor ice rink. The Joseph J. Piccininni Community Centre is located right next to Earlscourt Park. This modern facility boasts an indoor soccer field and probably the only indoor ñbocceî courts in Canada. It also has a twenty-five metre swimming pool, a gymnasium, and a seniors lounge.
The Dufferin/St. Clair Library, or ñBibliotecaî, contains the largest collection of Italian books in the city's public library system. The St. Clair-Silverthorn Library reflects the area's diverse population by offering books in many languages, including Italian, Greek, and Punjabi.
