Attractions & things to do for the kids in your life

Cummer Skateboard Park (North York)

Family Tested
High energy


When we approached the side of the bowl in this skatepark, a guy flew off from nowhere and flipped back into the bowl in a flash. Cummer Skateboard Park is small but packed with features with which the skaters seem to be very creative. Stairs, ramps, concrete corridors, different levels and a deep bowl, we can see it all in a glimpse. The strip of concrete surrounding the park is quite narrow so we had to be careful to stay out of the way of the skaters in action. An older guy gave my 10-year-old a tip or two after seeing him enduring a few painful-looking falls. Personally, I can't watch. When I dare to look at my newly extreme-sport-infatuated-one, he's as red as a tomato and soaked. An hour later, he's still at it! There's a great indoor pool, with a giant slide and a shallow area, in the adjacent Cummer Park Community Centre, as well as a small playground and four tennis courts in the back of the huge centre.
