Attractions & things to do for the kids in your life

College Park (Toronto)

Family Tested

Hidden oasis

Unfortunately closed! The website announces it will be removed.

If you walk south, around the large building at the south-west corner of Yonge and College, you'll reach College Park (officially known as Barbara Ann Scott Park). Out of sight, it featured one of the biggest fountains with a reflecting pool in the city. There were sculptures of a bear and an eagle in the park. In the winter, it turned into the loveliest artificial ice rink, with the advantage of a Tim Horton's in the Toronto College Park building to buy hot chocolates for the kids. All of it a couple of minutes walking distance from College Subway Station. I don't know if the fountain will be removed as well for Spring 2014.
