June as Recreation and Parks Month was created to draw public attention to the important benefits and values of recreation to individuals, families, neighbourhoods and communities.

Toronto Parks, Forestry and Recreation operates a wide variety of programs and facilities, including playgrounds, pools, ice surfaces, fitness centres, tennis courts, sports fields, five full-service golf courses, hectares of parkland, and 154 community centres.

The City's recreation programs provide children, youth, adults, seniors and people with disabilities the opportunity to participate in physical activity that has immediate and long-term benefits.

Toronto is Canada's largest city and sixth largest government, and home to a diverse population of about 2.8 million people. Toronto's government is dedicated to delivering customer service excellence, creating a transparent and accountable government, reducing the size and cost of government and building a transportation city. For information on non-emergency City services and programs, Toronto residents, businesses and visitors can dial 311, 24 hours a day, 7 days a week.
