Long Description:
After the Thorncliffe Park horse racing track was demolished in 1954, part of the property was made available to the borough of North York to develop a park and recreational facilities. Leaside Park is now city of Toronto greenspace which covers 3.4 hectares. The park includes a lighted baseball field, six lighted tennis courts, and plenty of playground. There is also a soccer field, awkwardly set in the outfield of the baseball park.

Leaside Park is bounded on the west by Millwood Road and on the south by the natural space that is the Don River valley. Since 2011, the Thorncliffe Park Urban Farmers have maintained a community garden in Leaside Park. Leaside Park is also home to the Leaside Outdoor Pool.
