Food In The Park

posted August 2, 2006

12 to 2 Tuesdays and Wednesdays, 1 to 3 Sundays.

From park staff Amy Withers: “Pizza is a make-your-own affair but we cook it for you in the oven and the cost is 2 dollars per pizza for dough, sauce and cheese. You can top your pizza with some of the fresh greens the garden is starting to yield like basil, kale, red chard, dill, and soon tomatoes. Of course feel free to bring extra toppings from home. On hot pizza days we set out the sprinkler for kids to dash through while you chat and we have a few toys and books for little ones too.”

Groups on pizza days:

Small groups: Amy says, “If you have a group of less than 12 people just call the park and tell us that you would like to come. Since pizza days are quite busy we suggest a less hectic time, for instance if you come late in the session (at 1.30 on Tuesdays and Wednesdays or 2.30 on Sundays) there is more space for a little group.”

Bigger groups: If you want to have a pizza party for a large group, more than 12 people, you must contact the park at 416 392 0913 to book a time separate from, but adjoining, our regular pizza hours (that is, right before or right after the regular pizza day hours). For the extra time and staff required for a scheduled party we charge 60 dollars plus $2 per pizza as usual. If your group has special circumstances and you are willing to make a trade of labour and time or goods for a lowered price, discuss it with staff….we like making deals.”

Every Friday at the big oven, 6 to 7 p.m.

Friday night suppers, weather permitting, every Friday from 6 to 7.30. Same low prices as other years – or free if you want to do swaps (e.g. park garden help, dishes, park clean-up). Contact park staff if you want to make this arrangement – no documentation is necessary, just your willingness to swap something the park needs (like your skills). See Bake Ovens and Food.

it’s at the playground every day

Serving coffee, juice, and good plain bake-oven food, mostly organic. You can swap your work skills for food there too, if you like. In this hot summer, don’t forget to bring a cup from home – the water fountain is broken but the cob courtyard has taps that dispense free, clean, delicious Toronto City water. No need to bring bottled water. (The food cart does sell bottled water, if you must.)
