City living doesn’t have to be void of green spaces, trees and parks, and when you’re living in the heart of downtown Toronto at King Blue Condos
there will be plenty of parks and parkettes surrounding your neighbourhood. Our city does a fantastic job at maintaining green spaces for residents to enjoy on a walk or run, with a good book and a picnic blanket, or with the dog, and just mere minutes from your home at King Street and Blue Jays Way
you’ll find some of the most popular and picturesque city parks in Toronto. Here are the three we love to frequent any time of year for a little taste of tranquility in the middle of the city.
What urban park will you be enjoying when you become a resident of King Blue. Join the conversation with us on Facebook and Twitter @KingBlueCondos.
Clarence Square Park
In the warmer months, this is the place where downtowners like to sit back with a new magazine, or people-watch until it’s time for a nap in the shade. 19th
century city planners sought to achieve a green resting space in the middle of the busy city, and it’s fantastic to see their vision has come to life with enormous trees, benches and bike lanes.
Just west of King Blue at King and Strachan you’ll find Stanley Park. It’s the place where downtown dog owners like to get together and let their dogs roam off-leash to stretch their legs and enjoy the fresh air. Two-legged friends will enjoy a friendly game with neighbours on the baseball diamond, as well as a dip in the pool and quality time at the playground with the kids on weekends.

In the summer Trinity Bellwoods becomes a mecca for downtown dwellers looking to catch up with friends and enjoy the sunshine and a meal al fresco. The huge field area is great for a day out with the dog, volleyball, tennis and more just a short streetcar ride away from King Blue. Be sure to keep an eye out for white squirrel sightings in the park- they’ve become somewhat of a folklore in the neighbourhood and the White Squirrel Coffee Shop
nearby takes it name from these little guys.
