Corktown Common

Corktown Common, an 18-acre public park, opened in 2013 but was recently closed for an extended period due to its proximity to the Pan Am Games Athletes’ Village. It’s now reopened but the crowds haven’t returned yet. It felt like I had the park to myself, making it seem like I was far from the city.

This little oasis is a sign the West Don Lands community is growing. When the public begins to move into the condos that formerly housed the athletes, you can be sure this park will really come to life.

Odin Cafe + Bar is a great new spot at 514 King St. East, a quick walk from the park. It’s a stunning space in which you can enjoy a Pilot Coffee Roasters latte, a panini and feast your eyes, too.
