A LITTLE ABOUT JIMMIE SIMPSON PARK & COMMUNITY CENTRE

RIVERSIDE EATS & BEATS STREETFEST
SATURDAY JUNE 6th ONLY
Taste the best of the hood & enjoy music beats in the heart of Queen Street East.
Jimmie Simpson Park and Recreation Center is located at 860 Queen Street East, 4 blocks east of the Don Valley.
We’re on Queen Street, so the 501 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.
Restrooms are located inside Jimmie Simpson Recreation Center.
