“Poor Visit Because Of "Ford Fest"!”
Reviewed 4 August 2014

I personally made the mistake of visiting this well known park in this part of Toronto when the "Ford Fest" was going on. No matter what part of the park one tried to get away from the noise from this event you could still hear it. Despite over 200 complaining to City Hall about this event being held on in this popular this event still went on!

“Relax in the park”
Reviewed 1 May 2014

Went there one afternoon last month with my son, nephew and niece and they loved it. The park is huge, plenty of space to relax. They biked around, played in the playground and just had fun running around. We found some benches and tables and ate the snacks we brought. It was a lovely outing.

“Met The Mayor”
Reviewed 10 October 2013

We attended Rob Ford's Barbecue for the 1st time at Thomson Park.
There were thousands of people there enjoying the barbecue, music and of course, meet the Mayor!
Very exciting in a lovely setting. Thomson Park streches a very long way and has many very lovely spots to picnic, walk or just relax. Check it out and just see what a breauty jewel sits in Scarborough just off Lawrence and Brimley.

“Oh Thomson Park,”
Reviewed 7 December 2012

Thomson park is huge, and it's fairly clear of crowds most of the time which makes it an ideal place to relax alone or with family.
