Unfortunately the Toronto Raptors’ spectacular season came to an end this past weekend after a loss to the Cleveland Cavaliers. Hats off to the Raptors, who won 56 games during the regular season and had a playoff run that exceeded the expectations of fans and staff. The Stanley Cup final series is about to begin which means that hockey will be a thing of the past within the next two weeks. Now that basketball is finished and hockey is coming to an end, the Toronto Blue Jays have chosen the perfect time to wake up as they won four out of their last five games. Today, we decided to cover the 5 best Baseball diamonds in Toronto.
High Park has almost everything you’ll ever need to live a healthy, active life with the multiple tennis courts, zoo, hills for strength training and more. However, High Park is also home to three pristine baseball fields with great sight lines, home-run markers, and proper fencing making it easy to fetch foul balls. If you live in downtown Toronto or near the west-end of the city, then we suggest checking out the High Park baseball diamonds. The fields are maintained throughout the summer and the convenience makes it one of the best baseball fields in the city.
Christie Pits Park
For those who want the most authentic baseball fields, we suggest Christie Pits Park, which is located a short distance from downtown Toronto. These three fields are complete with warning tracks, bleachers, dugouts, staff on site and each field is cut weekly. The premier diamond is cut twice per week and fertilized three times annually; giving this baseball diamond a professional look. If you’re seeking the Major League Baseball experience like the pros, Christie Pits Park is the place to visit this summer.
Trinity Bellwoods Park
Located in the very trendy West Queen West neighbourhood is Trinity Bellwoods Park, one of the most popular staples in a community that Vogue Magazine once labeled the “2nd coolest neighbourhood in the world.” Inside the park, you may find three baseball diamonds which accommodate all formats of the sport including softball, T-ball, Slo-pitch and of course baseball. A designated picnic area is also located on the park, which makes batting practice even more enjoyable. It’s a great place to take a few swings with the family before setting up a delicious picnic!
Unlike the other parks on this list which contains multiple baseball fields, Kew Gardens only has one field, but its proximity to the beaches makes it a desirable place to visit this summer. Kew Gardens is perfect for a group of friends who want to practice pitching, hitting, and then explore all the fantastic things the Beaches have to offer. Baseball combined with the boardwalk, ice cream, cafes, restaurants, water and sand makes this a complete experience.
North York, we could not forget about you! Located in the north end of the city is Eglinton Park, a beautiful space complete with bike trails, multipurpose fields, picnic sites, a wading pool, and two premier baseball diamonds. This park is well maintained and for those who are looking for amenities like free parking, Eglinton Park is the place to be. Take a few swings with the family and then have the kids splash around in the wading pool which is considered to be the masterpiece of the park!
