Play on the Runway
For almost 100 years, planes have taken flight on this stretch of land. Now it’s your turn! We’re opening the Downsview runway for an afternoon of free play in celebration of North York’s 100th birthday. Bring your kids, bikes, dogs, balls, skateboards, rollerblades, and sense of wonder.
These lands have been off-limits for nearly a century. The next 100 years will be different. Northcrest and Canada Lands, together with Bombardier, are inviting the local community and people across Toronto to come play with us and to learn about the accessible, inclusive, active neighbourhoods that will be coming here in the decades ahead.
This is an XOXO Downsview event made possible by Northcrest Developments, Canada Lands Company, Bombardier, and in association with Councillor James Pasternak.
