Toronto City Council and Toronto Cultural Services and Parks staff encourage programming in the parks and recognize that such programming helps to make Toronto an exciting community to live, work and visit. Community programs in City parks are arranged through obtaining a permit from the Management Services Branch, Customer Service unit of the Parks, Forestry and Recreation Division. These permits are issued according to the “Special Event Policies and Procedures for City Parklands.”
