Partial closure of Berczy Park for Santa Claus Parade

13 Nov

santa-claus_paradePark visitors should be advised that a large part of Berczy Park will be closed to the public on Sunday, November 18th during the annual Santa Claus Parade.

From 5am – 5:30pm on Sunday November 18th, parade organizers will fence off the park fountain, the main green space along Scott Street, and the Front Street border of the park, to install a private-access viewing area and entertainment for special-access guests and event sponsors (including young patients and families from Sick Kids and other community organizations).

To ensure that the public can access a sizeable portion of the park during the event, organizers will maintain the northeastern section of the park as ‘open to the public’. This area, see the green-coloured part on the map below, will include the mural garden/gravel pet-relief area at the base of the Flatiron Bldg and the northern-eastern grassy lawn/hill, bordering Wellington Street (opposite East Thirty-Six and Uncle Tony’s restaurants).

We thank you for your understanding as this popular holiday event visits our community and brings joy to many young and old. We hope you too enjoy the parade as it passes through our neighbourhood from noon to 4pm on Nov 18th.


Letter to Berczy Park users and community members.
