A BEAUTIFUL PARK CLOSE TO HOME: Christie Pits is used for many recreational activities, such as baseball and tobogganing.
Feel free to roam around the park. Have a picnic with us. Play a game of sports or a round of board games too and enjoy the balmy spring weather.
This is the perfect Meetup to enjoy one of the most popular Toronto parks, get active and meet new TAIR members. All for free!
What we'll have at the picnic:
-Fried chicken/chicken roast
If you're able to bring any sport-related gear too, please let me know.
NOTE: I will be checking to see if Christie Pits Park has a shelter for picnic tables. If they don't, then I will postpone this event to next week. Normally what happens is that it rains for a few minutes then it stops, so I'm not too worried about the weather so much.
Where to Meet and how to get to Christie Pits
By TTC: Very simple, just get off at Christie subway station on the Bloor-Danforth line.
By Car: Getting there by car is more difficult. The closest highway is the Allen Road, so exit off Eglinton and head south to Bloor Street West. And depending where you are, head towards Christie Street.
Where we'll meet: We'll be waiting inside Christie subway station at 2:30 p.m., where the collector booth is. After 15 minutes, we'll be heading to the park.
We'll be at the bottom of the park. From Christie station, walk west and you'll see a paved road (can fit a car), it leads down to the baseball diamonds. Take this paved road and walk all the way down until you see a children's wading pool. We'll be setting up our picnic there.
If you're coming later on, we'll have a Meetup sign so we'll be easily identifiable. You can come and leave whenever you like.
If you get lost of need directions, you can call me[masked]-9218.
