WordPress will be 15th years old this May 27th, 2018! #WP15
On Sunday, May 27th, we're planning a global event celebrating the WordPress 15th Anniversary with WordPress community groups around the world. In Toronto we will have a family picnic in High Park, downtown and accessible.
High Park Map Link:
You are invited! We are meeting in Picnic Area #19 near the Grenadier parking lot. Come to the event and enjoy some cake and celebrate 15 years of WordPress. We'll be sharing our party photos and love for WordPress with the rest of the world via the hashtag #wp15. Any refreshments you should bring, but please no BBQs!
Don't forget to spread the word, let's make this WordPress birthday memorable :)
WordPress Community has setup a website to show all the other international locations where celebrations are planned:
High Park does not have any BBQs. You cannot bring your own BBQ into any City of Toronto Park.
Getting there using public transit
Subway: Get off at High Park station on the Bloor-Danforth subway line between Keele and Runnymede stations. The park's north entrance is a two minute walk from the station.
Streetcar: Take the 508 Lakeshore streetcar and get off at the Parkside or Colborne Lodge stops or take the 506 Carlton streetcar all the way to the High Park loop by Parkside Drive.
Bus: Take the 80 Queensway bus route which runs between Keele subway station and Sherway Gardens. Get off at the Howard Park Avenue stop on Parkside Road.
Tips for people visiting from the far east/west end of the GTA: Park at Kipling or Kennedy subway stations - parking is free on the weekends - and take the subway to High Park station. This saves time and frustration due to traffic and your parking spot is guaranteed. Parking can be hard to come by on busy days in the park.
Arriving by car
The park is located between Bloor Street and The Queensway and is bordered by Parkside Drive on the east. The main entrance is from Bloor Street - turn south at High Park Avenue.
The other car entrance is from Parkside Drive: turn west onto High Park Blvd. The south entrance from The Queensway doesn't get you too far into the park. You can drive up to Colborne Lodge and the children's picnic area where the road loops around and leads you back out of the park. If you want to drive deeper into the park use the Bloor St. or Parkside Dr. entrances.
