Is your team looking to get outside the office, but remain productive in other ways? We suggest a corporate outing to Downsview Park! You’ll have the opportunity to build cohesiveness as a team and enhance your collaborative and interpersonal skills, all while participating in various stewardship activities. 

These outings are a great way to:

  • Give back to the community
  • Bond with colleagues outside of the work environment
  • Get active and support wellness initiatives (who needs a standing desk when you can get those steps in?)
  • Learn about stewardship and the positive impact it can have on the environment
  • Incorporate some productive fun into your company culture
  • Help us ensure that there is wellbeing for all, forever (sustainability at the Park)

Program length:
Each program is 2 hours; groups can choose two programs for a full day session. Full day session includes a 30–60-minute break in the middle.
