Parks & Recreation

I am proud to champion the improvement of public realm spaces to ensure Toronto is a vibrant city. If you experience an issue, including dogs outside of permitted off-leash areas or garbage pick-up, in one of our many parks, please contact 311 or email [email protected].

Encampments in Public Parks and Ravines
Encampments in public parks are handled by the Parks Ambassador Program. Working with Streets to Homes, Public Health, and the Toronto Police, Toronto's Parks Ambassadors will coordinate outreach to street-involved persons encamped in parks and connect them with shelter and housing services.

To report an active or abandoned encampment, call Parks Ambassador Troy Ford at 416-771-3042.
