Vivid Condominiums’ myriad of ready-to-enjoy amenities are situated in an ideal location close to parkland and recreation centres. The master-planned community from Pemberton Group has been scoring top points with buyers for its proximity to public transit, shops, restaurants and outdoor activities.
Located at Dundas Street West and Islington Avenue, the beautiful green space of Tom Riley Park is only a short distance from Vivid Condos. Named for Etobicoke’s only commissioner of parks and recreation (J. Thomas Riley), who was noted for creating innovative recreation programs and ‘the best parks system in the country,’ this park spans an impressive 14.8 hectares and is a hot spot for summertime fun.
Through Riley’s foresight hundreds of acres of Etobicoke land were set aside, and he negotiated the development of over 200 more acres from the provincial government. That acquisition gave birth to the Etobicoke Olympium, Centennial Park Ski Hill and Chalet, Centennial Arena, Centennial Park Conservatory and Centennial Park, which opened in 1967 to commemorate Canada’s 100th birthday.
You can strap on your running shoes and take a jog along meandering Mimico Creek or go for a more intense workout at the park’s health club.Between the multi-purpose sports field, baseball diamond and 11 tennis courts, sports enthusiasts will easily find reasons to go there every day. Prefer to laze around? Try kicking back and soaking up the sun or going for an intimate picnic amongst the trees.
Those looking to exercise their green thumbs will also find themselves making regular trips to the park with tools in hand. Tom Riley features an allotment garden where community members can grow vegetables, fruits and herbs. The park playground will also inspire kids to take a break from their video games and get excited to spend some time outdoors.
At another nearby landmark, golf enthusiasts can perfect their swing at Islington Golf Club, located at 45 Riverbank Drive. Established in 1923, the 18-hole tree-lined golf course was designed by renowned golf course architect Stanley Thompson and has played host to the GAO Ontario Men’s Amateur and RBC Canadian Open. Nestled on the lush parkland, the private clubhouse also offers members access to practice facilities, teaching professionals and a full service golf shop.
