Recreation in Flemingdon Park
The Flemingdon neighbourhood is well served by two excellent community centres. The Flemingdon Resource Centre at 29 St. Dennis Drive is a multi-faceted facility that includes an indoor pool, a gymnasium, a day care centre and a busy public library.
The Flemingdon Community Centre at 150 Grenoble Drive features the only municipally funded indoor children's playground in Canada. This "Playground Paradise" features a two storey play structure, a huge spiral slide, a track ride, cargo elevator, talk tube, crawl tubes, construction zone, and ball pool with 8,000 balls all set in a meadow-like atmosphere. There is also a party room in this centre that can accommodate up to thirty-five people.
Across the street from the Flemingdon Community Centre is the Flemingdon Ice Arena which offers organized hockey league programs and pleasure skating. Adjacent to the arena and community centre is Flemingdon Park a long linear park that spans almost the entire length of the neighbourhood. This park has soccer fields, a baseball diamond, and a large basketball court. On the east side of the neighbourhood is another large park known as Linkwood Lane Park. This park features a children's playground, a soccer field and a baseball diamond. North of Linkwood Lane Park is the Flemingdon Park golf course, a pay as you play course set in the very scenic Don River Valley.
The Ontario Science Centre located at 770 Don Mills Road is an interactive museum of science and technology that features more than 800 exhibits. One of the Science Centre's most popular attractions is the Shoppers Drug Mart OMNIMAX theatre which features a 24-metre domed screen with a powerful hi-fidelity sound system.
