Free concerts on tap at downtown Toronto parks

To the same degree that this summer has witnessed a surge in large musical festivals in Toronto, the more intimate outdoor concert series is also gaining in popularity. Along with series at the Toronto Music Garden and Casa Loma, "Play the Parks" returns for its third year at a variety of Toronto's downtown park spaces.

The series kicks off on June 16th at Trinity Square, where Project ATX6 will play in this unique urban park space beside the Eaton Centre. Following this year's launch, performances will take place throughout the summer at three additional locations including the College Park Courtyard, Miller Granby Parkette, and Mackenzie House.

The free series is hosted by the Downtown Yonge BIA and 4479 Toronto, which aims to make good on the notion that Toronto is a music city. Few of the performers involved with "Play the Parks" are household names, but the scheduling is robust, which means there will be plenty of opportunity to enjoy live music in the open air.
