Tips for enjoying Arts in the Park

Getting There

Arts in the Parks is accessible via TTC. Visit for information on routes, trip planning, fares, unexpected service changes and other information.

Not to Scale

Maps in the yearly guide are not drawn to scale, use as a reference only.

Watch the Weather

Each event has a different weather plan. Keep up-to-date with event changes, alerts and cancellations due to weather on the day of by following the organization or artist’s social media.

Make a Day of it!

Pack a picnic lunch or dinner, snacks or games to enjoy at the park.

Think About Seating

Each event provides a different level of saint accommodation. Check our website to see whether the event you plan on attending provides seating, or is BYOB (bring-your-own-blanket!).

Dress for the Forecast

Events can take place rain or shine, in the evening, late in September or in the middle of a July day. Remember to pack an umbrella or a light jacket for wet or chilly days. If the area is near woods or a pond, pack bug spray. For hot, sunny days, bring sunscreen, sunglasses and water!

Respect our Parks and Other Green Spaces

Stay on paths and trails, remove any garbage or recycling you bring in and leave the park in better shape than how you found it.

Get More Information

Extra hard copies of this guide can be found at libraries, community centres, and local businesses in the areas surrounding parks that will be animated. When in doubt, visit our website for the most up-to-date information. Join our mailing list to receive e-communications.

Be Respectful

It’s been a challenging time for many, and while we are thrilled to be together again, many may still have reservations being present in large crowds. Please be respectful to our artists, staff, volunteers and your fellow audience members.
