  • Trinity Bellwoods Park, Queen St & Strachan Ave (501 streetcar to Strachan Ave), [2]. This is one of the largest and most pleasant parks in central Toronto. It has the feel of a communal back garden, with families picnicking, students reading while getting a tan, pickup baseball and frisbee games and children playing in the large playground. The park also has tennis courts and a dog run in the last remaining section of a dried up ravine.
