This website is maintained by the Friends of Sorauren Park, a non-profit, volunteer-run, community-based organization dedicated to supporting the park and developing the City-owned property along the southern edge of the park (Wabash Avenue) into new recreational and community facilities. The new Sorauren Park Fieldhouse is just the first phase of bringing the old industrial site back to life for community use.
Sorauren Park and all its related facilities are owned by the City of Toronto. However, many volunteers and community groups are also involved in programming, maintaining and enhancing the park. These groups are always looking for more volunteers, so don’t be shy!
The volunteers of the SPSA work with Toronto Parks, Forestry and Recreation to run the children’s soccer and baseball (t-ball) programs from May to September. The SPSA maintains its own web site here.
The Co-op runs the Sorauren Farmers’ Market, held every Monday 3 – 7 p.m.
The park is also blessed with other volunteers who look after things such as the natural ice rink (weather permitting), Pumpkin Parade, Summer Festival, and the Charles G. Williams parkette and playground across the street at the north-east corner of Wabash and Sorauren avenues. From the very beginning, Sorauren Park’s success has been built through the efforts of hundreds of volunteers. Contact any one of these groups or the Wabash Building Society to get involved in your popular city park.
