Let’s celebrate our planet together at Downsview Park!
We invite you to join us in celebrating our planet and the environment on April 23rd, 2023, at the Play Zone at Downsview Park. This event is free to the public.
Bring your family and friends to enjoy some hands-on activities, opportunities to learn and connect with our education staff, vendors, and much more. This event is a great opportunity to learn about ways to reduce your environmental footprint, connect with like-minded individuals and organizations, and celebrate our planet.

Where can I park my car?
We encourage you to reduce your environmental footprint by walking, biking or taking public transit to our event. 😊 However, we understand that driving may be a more accessible option.
If you do come by car, please park on the gravel pad (P1) by the Festival Terrace. To get there, turn onto John Drury Dr from Sheppard Ave West, and then continue straight at the intersection of John Drury Dr and Carl Hall Rd. Once you hit Canuck Ave, turn left onto the gravel pad!
Please note that our parking lot by the Play Zone will be closed as this is where the event will be taking place.
Is this event accessible? Will there be accessible parking?
Yes! People of all abilities will be able to enjoy Earth Day at Downsview Park. Limited accessible parking (A1) will be available in the loop north of 70 Canuck Ave.
Will there be washrooms and water fountains?
Yes. Washrooms, handwashing stations and water fountains will be available. Please bring a reusable bottle as you can refill water at our water trailer.
Can I bring my dog?
Yes! Earth Day at Downsview Park will be a dog-friendly event. Our only requirement is that your dog is kept on a leash at all times.
One of our vendors, Juno’s Grooming, will be offering complimentary nail trimmings throughout the day, so be sure to check them out if you visit with your dog.
