Attractions & things to do for the kids in your life

Sherbourne Common (Toronto)

Family Tested
High energy

Going with the flow

Sherbourne Common, one block east of Canada’s Sugar Beach, opened in February 2011 with a pretty rink which turns into a vast spray pad in the summer. Across the street, Sherbourne Common continues, with original play structures. The new park includes an ultraviolet facility for treatment of the storm water, which can be filtered and released into a water channel leading to the lake, thanks to three tall artistic structures. The canal greatly ads interest to the waterfront promenade. We also visited at night and it gets quite magical with the special lighting and the CN Tower and cityscape in the background.
