Sorauren Park Fieldhouse Public Information Meeting
When: Saturday January 17, 2009 at 2 p.m.
Sorauren Park Fieldhouse, 50 Wabash Avenue
The fieldhouse in Roncesvalles Village’s Sorauren Park opened last year and provides public washrooms, storage, meeting spaces and a kitchen for park visiters. The building used to be home to the offices for the Canadian Linseed Oil company, but has been renovated in to a useful public space. There will be an information session this weekend to discuss how visiters and members of the community can use this space.
Meet with representatives of Toronto Parks, Forestry and Recreation to have your questions answered:
• who can rent out the Fieldhouse
• permit policies and procedures
• how much does it cost
• what times are available
