Take a walk through 25 years of Riverdale ArtWalk history through the journey of the artist

This exhibition showcased a collection of artwork, stories and memorabilia.

Riverdale ArtWalk has been instrumental in building the successful careers of hundreds if not thousands of artists over the years. We invite you to visit the Leslie Grove Gallery to journey through the stories of the past 25 years.



This 2.6 hectare park just east of Broadview Avenue on Queen Street East features a ball diamond, multipurpose sports field, lit hockey rink, two lit tennis courts, basketball courts and a children’s playground. Adjacent to the park is this Jimmie Simpson Recreation Centre.

Getting here:

Jimmie Simpson Park and Recreation Center is located at 872 Queen Street East, 4 blocks east of the Don Valley.

We’re on Queen Street, so the Queen streetcar or bus is the route, and the Booth Avenue stop is right at the park.


It will be difficult, but there are pay lots in the neighbourhood, and street parking, but please be polite to our neighbours on the surrounding residential streets.

Public Washrooms

Restrooms are located inside Jimmie Simpson Recreation Center.
