Ready for a change of scenery? Looking for some new neighbourhoods to explore? Here’s a good one for you. The area around Rochester Park and Portsdown holds one of the neighbourhood’s best kept secrets. A fun and off the beaten track park and playground, One North Park is near some of our favourite eateries and cafes such as Pietrasanta for pizza and Jimmy Monkeys for coffee and brunch.

Small and quiet, this stroller friendly park and playground is rarely crowded. Older kids will enjoy its slightly inclined paths for biking or scooting while the playground has both challenging and easy climbing areas and slides. There are also some grassy areas for picnics as well as a small waterfall to cool off in.
