Babe this year’s first outdoor movie June 23

The adorable, family-friendly movie Babe is this year’s first film in the 2018 Sorauren Park Outdoor Movie series.

The movie starts at 9:30 when it gets dark… but come early for dinner in the park with pizza from the park’s new wood-fired pizza oven. Pizza will be available starting at 8 p.m. until supplies last.

Movie screenings are free, but bring cash for pizza, fresh-made popcorn from the concession stand, Sorauren Park t-shirts, and donations to support the non-profit Friends of Sorauren Park. Bring soccer chairs, air mattresses and blankets to stay comfy.

Interested in volunteering at our movie nights (and getting a free t-shirt)? Contact us.

Big thanks to our 2018 sponsors Meridian Credit Union, Dundas West Animal Hospital, Master Mechanic High Park and Pizzeria Defina.

Special Family Day at the park Feb. 19

Come to Sorauren Park on Family Day, Monday February 19, for a special Farmers Market, 3 – 7 p.m. The pizza oven will be fired up, there will be free hot cider, and delicious hot chocolate will be sold from an outdoor booth.

If the weather cooperates, the natural ice rink will be open for pleasure skating and shinny. Plus, all the winter Market vendors will be open in the Fieldhouse.

The Market will also be offering a family portrait service and board games. See you at the park!

Pumpkin Sale fundraiser for the park Oct. 21

Get your pumpkins here! The 10th annual Sorauren Pumpkin Sale runs Saturday Oct. 21 from 9 a.m. to 12 noon at the park.

Come for your pumpkin, face painting, and hot apple cider. Meet your neighbours.

Every dollar raised goes towards park improvements through the Friends of Sorauren Park. This year we are raising funds to cover outstanding costs for the new pizza oven.

Over the years, the pumpkin sale has raised $22,000 for park projects including new benches, trees, Fieldhouse appliances and capital enhancements including the Town Square.

The Pumpkin Sale is hosted by Chander Chaddah, Broker, Sutton Group Associates in support of the Friends of Sorauren Park.

See you on the Town Square on the 21st!

Volunteers needed July 22-23 to finish outdoor oven

The Friends of Sorauren Park are calling for community volunteers to help finish the park’s new bake oven, with a community build scheduled for Saturday, July 22 and Sunday July 23.

There’s a special need for a mason or folks with masonry skills, as well as folks with carpentry and roofing skills. But anyone handy with tools and willing to help out is invited to put their stamp on the oven. We’ll have a contractor on hand to supervise.

The oven’s specialized core has been completed by a professional. Now we need to build the housing and roof to surround the core and give the oven its final look.

The final build is made possible thanks to a generous donation by Zinc Developments, developers of the 35 Wabash Avenue condo across the street from the park. Zinc’s donation purchases all the supplies to finish the oven. Thanks Zinc!
