L'Amoreaux North Park

L'Amoreaux Park is between Birchmount Rd and Kennedy Rd, spanning over the north and south side of McNicoll Ave. L'Amoreaux North Park is of course north of McNicoll Ave. This is a bit of a hidden gem when it comes to parks in Scarborough.

With many picnic tables and charcoal bbq grills scattered throughout this park in a wide open space, this is an incredibly popular park for picnics and family gatherings. They also have 3 large fire pits which you don't see often in Toronto neighbourhood parks.
