Support the businesses that support Sorauren Park

Over the years many local businesses have supported the programming, activities and projects that make Sorauren Park a treasured part of the community. They’ve done this with cash sponsorships or donations, in-kind donations of goods or services, or other types of support.

Now is our time to support them (even more!) to keep our community strong and ready for a return to normal, whatever the new normal looks like. Use our directory below to support our supporters, and check business status.

Disclaimer: Individual business details change quickly, so please call ahead. Business owners: If your information needs updating, if we have missed you, or you’d like to be taken off this list, please contact us.

You can also check with the Roncesvalles BIA, the Parkdale Village BIA and the Little Portugal on Dundas BIA for information on local businesses.
