2 Rozell Road
Located just northwest of the intersection of Port Union and Lawson, Adams Park stretches over nearly sixteen hectares of green space in West Rouge. For the athletes and their fans, this park features two lit baseball diamonds and a multi-purpose sport field. It is also home to a children's playground and splash pad - quite popular in the summer months - as well as a large picnic area with shelter. In the winter, the park's large hill makes this park a favourite for tobogganers.
5421 Lawrence Ave.
Right off Lawrence, just west of Port Union and the Rouge Hill GO Station, you will find the sprawling green field of Bill Hancox Park. It is best known for its soccer fields - one adult-sized and two for juniors - where you can almost always see a game being played in the evening when the season is right. The park also features several walking paths and a children's playground.
Right next to the sports field at Centennial Road Jr. Public School is Centennial Park - a quiet grassy area spotted with trees, which shares claim to the children's playground at its neighbouring school.
65 Charlottetown Blvd.
Adjacent to Charlottetown Jr. Public School is Charlottetown park, a large grassy space featuring a baseball diamond, a multi-purpose sport field, and a children's playground. In addition, the park is home to three lit outdoor tennis courts where its west-most border meets Charlottetown Blvd. At the south end of the park is the Port Union Library and Community Recreation Centre whose property offers a highly popular skate park, as well as an outdoor sports pad with a few well-loved basketball nets.
73 Colonel Danforth Trail
This stretch of green space is another gem of a ravine in Toronto featuring the Highland Creek Trail. Wildlife, interesting plants and Highland Creek make this a wonderful park for walking in the city's east end. There is plenty of room to explore: if you follow the park trail to the northwest you will connect to the spacious grounds of Morningside Park; travel southeast instead, and you will reach Lake Ontario.
(access at intersection of Lawrence Ave. E. and Rouge Hills Dr)
A popular locale for house league soccer teams, Wanita Park is a small shady park on the north east corner of the intersection of Meadowvale and Lawrence. The park features two junior soccer fields as well as a children's playground, tucked in at the back of the park away from traffic.
