Recreation in Mount Dennis
Mount Dennis is rich in parkland. Jasper Park and Noble Park, located in the interior of the neighbourhood are medium sized parks geared towards children. Westlake Memorial Park, located off Jaspar Avenue, is named after the Westlake brothers, Thomas, Albert and George who died in action during World War II. This park contains a children's playground, a baseball diamond and some of the steepest tobogganing hills in Toronto.
Eglinton Flats is a scenic greenspace of wide open parkland divided into four areas by Jane Street and Eglinton Avenue. It has paved trails, a large pond, picnic benches, sports fields and twelve tennis courts. The Eglinton Flats Winter Tennis Club puts a bubble on six of the courts during the wintertime which are then made available to the public either on a pay-as-you-play basis or by membership. Seasonal permits for the sports fields are available to organized leagues and individual groups. Year round washroom/changerooms are available on site.
The Scarlett Woods Golf Course, located in the south-west pocket of Eglinton Flats, is an executive-length par 62 course suitable for both beginners and experts. This course features many challenging par three holes and is rated as moderately difficult.
The newly renovated Mount Dennis Community Hall on Holly Street offers year round programs to Mount Dennis residents as well as serving as an administrative centre for many recreational programs within this district. The Mount Dennis Public Library at 1123 Weston Road offers programs for children and seniors.
