Site plan showing bridge over Barrie GO line with future connection to Sorauren Park. North is up. Metrolinx has already expropriated the wedge of land between the Kitchener rail corridor, Dundas bridge, and Barrie rail corridor.

The City of Toronto has released the latest update to the design planning for the southerly extension of the West Toronto Railpath, from the Dundas Street bridge south to Queen St./Sudbury Street.

The designs continue to include a future bridge connection over the Kitchener Metrolinx GO train corridor from the Rail Path into Sorauren Park.

Game 5 viewing party is on

Putting our trust in Environment Canada (no pressure), the Game 5 viewing party is on! Friends of Sorauren Park will screen the fifth game in the NBA Finals between the Raptors and the Warriors on the Town Square. Tip-off is at 9 pm tonight, June 10.

While we’re predicting the rain to stop around game time, the park will be damp, so plan accordingly. The Town Square is perfect for lawn chairs and inflatables. Bring a tarp to put underneath blankets if you prefer the grassy areas.

Donations appreciated! It costs more than $1,000 in permit and insurance fees to screen each game, costs picked up by the non-profit Friends of Sorauren Park. We rely on your donations to support this kind of park programming. Cash and credit/debit accepted.

Go Raptors!
