More About The Riverside Common Market By The Leslieville Flea
Riverside Common Park is located at 657 Queen Street East. The Riverside BIA, Councillor Paula Fletcher, and community collaborators are working together to bring in regular activations to this new community space, starting this fall and winter! The first few markets are a collaboration with The Leslieville Flea Market to bring their successful and well-established market to Riverside Common Park.
The Riverside Common Market By The Leslieville Flea will sell vintage, antique collectibles, vintage fashion, handcrafted art and more. The markets will also feature other activation like acoustic music and art pop ups.
On October 17, in addition to the Flea Market, Councillor Paula Fletcher will be officially launching the park for the first time with speeches and commemorative activities. Stay tuned for announcements!
Learn more about Riverside Common Park
Did you know? Riverside Common is a new city park on Queen St E just east of the Don Valley. Check out a short video clip/tour of the Riverside Common space located within an amazing and established commercial and residential district: the Riverside Business Improvement Area within Riverside neighbourhood, South Riverdale, Toronto. The park is easily accessible by the 501 and 504 TTC streetcar routes, bicycle, and foot as well.
The public park, by Streetcar Developments, is designed for community activations: with its open level surface and nods to the baseball/sports history of the area as the former site of the Toronto Baseball Grounds through the baseball diamond design motifs and lighting, to the plaque embedded in the ground.
