A LITTLE ABOUT JIMMIE SIMPSON PARK & COMMUNITY CENTRE

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.

Parking:

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.
