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.

Farmers’ Market moves outdoors May 21

The Sorauren Farmers’ Market moves outdoors to the Sorauren Town Square on Victoria Day, May 21, from 3 to 7 p.m., and runs outdoors every Monday until October.

Want to know where your market food comes from? Check out this map showing vendor locations from across southern Ontario… we are so lucky to live in this fabulous agricultural belt.

The park will be bustling on Victoria Day with the Sorauren Sports season now under way… best to walk, ride or take transit to the park.

The Market has just celebrated its 10th anniversary. Every week, since 2008, the Sorauren Farmers’ Market has brought together residents of the Sorauren, Roncesvalles, High Park and Parkdale neighborhoods, offering the best that our local Ontario farmers and producers have to offer. The Market is produced by the West End Food Coop.

Environment Day April 28 on Wabash Avenue

Round up those old paint cans and broken electronics. The annual Community Environment Day, hosted by the City of Toronto, takes place Saturday, April 28, from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. on Wabash Avenue by Sorauren Park.

Car traffic on Wabash will be modified during these times to accommodate the event.

The annual event is a great way to properly dispose of household hazardous waste including old batteries, solvents, fluorescent bulbs, expired medications and more. Crews also accept old electronics including cell phones, computers, printers and TVs.

The City publishes a full list of accepted material, including supplies that will be reused such as arts and crafts materials, clothing in good condition, and much more.

You can also buy kitchen green bins, pick up free compost, and learn more about City environmental efforts.

Get those barcodes ready… registration starts March 7 for the 2018 Sorauren Park children’s soccer and baseball/t-ball programs, kids and adults tennis, and early-year adventure day camps.

Toronto Parks, Forestry and Recreation, in partnership with the all-volunteer Sorauren Park Sports Association, runs the soccer and baseball (t-ball) leagues at the park starting every May.  The City runs the tennis programs, and also runs age 4-5 Adventure Day Camps at the Sorauren Fieldhouse.

Make sure you have your City Client number and Family number prior to registering. This web page provides all the information you need to know to register. Call a customer service representative from 8:30am to 4:30pm, Monday to Friday, at 416-338-4386 to set up your account today if you don’t already have one.

To search the FunGuide for Sorauren Park programs, type “Sorauren Avenue Park” in the location bar on this page. You’ll need each program’s barcode number to register.

Soccer and baseball/t-ball programs range from age 4 to 13. The tone is fun and friendly, with an emphasis on building sportsmanship, skills, team play and exercise. Volunteer parents serve as coaches and fundraisers (for the t-shirt uniforms and trophies), while the City provides the equipment, referees, and registration system.

Contact Sorauren Park Sports Association if you’d like to volunteer!
