Earth Day at Downsview Park    Sun Apr 28, 2019, Toronto, ON

For more than 15 years, Earth Day at Downsview Park has been a go-to event for families looking to get involved in the world’s largest environmental movement. This year, the Park is excited to celebrate another Earth Day with a day-long event that promises to be bigger and better than ever!

This year, we’re offering a host of new and family-friendly activities which include: an outdoor vendors’ market, self-directed scavenger hunt, free workshops on how to make your home more ‘green,’ and much more. Best of all, every activity is FREE—we hope to see you there!

Here’s a list of some of the awesome activities you can expect at Earth Day at Downsview Park:

- Outdoor vendors’ market
