Recreation in Weston
Like most Ontario towns Weston has its own motto visible on all of its street signs. This motto "Home of the Bicycle" refers to the Canada Cycle and Motor Company which was based in Weston until 1970, and was reputed to have been at one time the largest bicycle manufacturer in the world. Weston no longer manufactures bicycles, but it does have an excellent bike path that follows the Humber River all the way south to the Martin Goodman Trail on the Toronto waterfront.
Lions Park off Hickory Tree Road, overlooking the Humber River, is the largest park in Weston. This park has four tennis courts, two baseball diamonds, two swimming pools, a snack bar, and a children's playground. Lions Park is also the home of the Weston Lions Recreation Arena that offers ice rentals and banquet hall facilities. National Hockey League All Star Paul Coffey played in the Weston Minor Hockey League that operates out of this arena.
The Weston Golf and Country Club, located off St. Phillips Road, hosted the 1955 Canadian Open where the illustrious Arnold Palmer won his first professional tournament.
