Enjoy Free Music At The Big On Bloor Festival
This Saturday, July 21, Toronto will be hosting the Big On Bloor Festival presenting hundreds of culturally significant events, activities, displays and exhibitions. Come to the main stage at 1141 Bloor St. W. and enjoy free music from noon to midnight.
Take A Trip To The Toronto Islands
The Toronto Islands may be small, but there’s no shortage of things to do there. If you’d like to explore the islands at a clip, rent a bike from the Bicycle Centre or bring your own bike. Prefer water activities? Canoes and kayaks can be rented on the islands, but you can also boat over from Toronto if you own your own. The 18-hole disc golf course is also a cheap and cheerful island activity.
Spend Your Day In Rouge Park
If you’re feeling consumed by the city this summer, it couldn’t be simpler – or cheaper – to get up close and personal with nature. Newly launched this summer, the TD Rouge Park Express offers free shuttle service from downtown Toronto to Rouge National Urban Park. The park features over 50 square kilometres of wilderness just outside of the city confines. Here, you’ll find picnic tables, lush wetlands, hiking trails, flowing rivers, and a sandy beach.
