Christie Pits Park offers several ways to spend quality time throughout the year with family, friends, or simply alone between downtown Toronto and the larger green space, High Park. There are well-defined areas to play baseball, softball, soccer, hockey, basketball or table tennis. Some fields are equipped with lights. There’s a large outdoor pool, children’s playground with a wading pool, and washrooms.

The entire park sits below street level which makes it very easy to view the activity around it. The main baseball diamond, Dominico Park, offers an excellent view of games especially the ones played by the Toronto Maple Leafs of the Intercounty Baseball League. Be aware of flying balls if you successfully find a nearby parking spot during these outings. A snack bar is usually open during these games, but there’s not shortage of eateries along Bloor Street West and surrounding neighbourhoods.

There are other events like the Christie Pits Film Festival that bring the community together especially in the summertime.

Unless you’re planning to visit Christie Pits Park with a very large group, the subway is the most convenient way to get there, The Christie station is located across the street.

I am and have been a realtor in the Christie Pits neighborhood since 1990 and Christie Pits Park has always been the heart of the community. It is a beautiful and well treed Park offering activities all year round. In the summer, from early July to the end of August, the park is home to the Christie Pits Film Festival, one of the largest outdoor film festival in the city. It’s free! The park also features several baseball diamonds including the famous Dominico field whe fois can watch Toronto Maple Leaf Baseball free all summer. The park is also hots to many summer fairs, arts crawl and festivals. The magnificent children’s playground has been completely renovated. There are numerous brand new concrete ping pong tables, a great public pool, a basketball court and in the winter there is a great skating rink. The Part used to be. Sand pit so the topography of the park is similar to a valley and walking the lovely winding and treed roads is wonderful. One of the best parks in Toronto. Check our videos about the Park at www,Joséecouture.com if you go, bring a blanket and a picnic,

Christie Pits Park is an absolutely lovely park, with a lot of free space and it is great for dogs too! Mind you, I've only been to the park proper, a few times; my main time spent at the Pits, was watching the Maple Leafs play.

No, this isn't the same as the hockey team: they are members of the Intercounty Baseball League and they (usually) have a few former Major Leaguers on their team. This is a nice venue, especially for a community field; lots of bleacher space, lots of sun and fresh air and the diamond is very well-maintained and groomed and the team always does fairly well, so its not a bad way to spend part of an afternoon!

Very easy to get to (its a big park, connected by a bunch of streets) and a Subway station is oh so close by. A good park indeed.

We had occasion to visit Christie Pits Park because it was the ending point of the 2015 March Against Monsanto. Dozens of booths were set up at the southwest end of the park, where vendors promoted organic, GMO free, healthy food sources.

Down in the valley area of the park is a large playground for kids with lots of newer equipment. There's also a covered pavillion.

At the north end are baseball diamonds, where the Toronto inter county baseball league plays.

The park is on the edge of Korea Town, and people watching is excellent here.

We enjoyed a nice summer charcuterie picnic here. The park is quite pleasant and located right on the subway line.

Many people visiting Toronto are at a bit of a loss for where to go, other than those which are marketed to them. Unknown to most is that the city has designed its own walks inside the city, and there is one which focuses on the lost Garrison Creek which runs from Christie Pits to the waterfront at Norway Park. It takes about 90 minutes, to walk, though it would be longer if people stop along the way on College Street or Queen Street. Although traces of Garrison are further to the north, the best part starts at Christie, and even though it is a relatively regular park, this extra bit of history gives it an edge.

We found street parking not far from the pool. The locker rooms were clean and our kids (ages 5,7,9, and 11) loved swimming in the pool. There are three different pools. The shallow pool and the deep pool were very cold. The regular pool was warm so we stayed in there most of the time. Some of the kids went into the deep pool to dive in, but could only last a little while before getting too cold. We had a wonderful afternoon swimming here!

Site of a major riot in 1933. Beyond that just a local park. The Toronto Daily Star described the riot the next day:

“ While groups of Jewish and Gentile youths wielded fists and clubs in a series of violent scraps for possession of a white flag bearing a swastika symbol at Willowvale Park last night, a crowd of more than 10,000 citizens, excited by cries of ‘Heil Hitler’ became suddenly a disorderly mob and surged wildly about the park and surrounding streets, trying to gain a view of the actual combatants, which soon developed in violence and intensity of racial feeling into one of the worst free-for-alls ever seen in the city.
Scores were injured, many requiring medical and hospital attention... Heads were opened, eyes blackened and bodies thumped and battered as literally dozens of persons, young or old, many of them non-combatant spectators, were injured more or less seriously by a variety of ugly weapons in the hands of wild-eyed and irresponsible young hoodlums, both Jewish and Gentile".
