The best outdoor spot in the city do the forbidden dance? We’ll see you there this weekend…
1. Mallory Green (Mallory Crescent and Moore Avenue)
Mallory Green is the granddaddy of all outdoor locals for risky activity. The park recovered from its late 80s reputation as ideal homeless housing, and managed to make it though the 90s when it was a rumored drug-drop-off spot. Now Mallory Green only does what is does best: provide an ideal venue for late-night, outdoor romancing.
Turn down the lights and park your car at the south edge of the park. You’ll be situated in a classic lovers-lane lookout, with a perfect view of the Toronto city skyline. If you want to get out of your car to get off, try cuddling up under a tree or on a bench in the parkette. Don’t be surprised if you’re competing for space on a Friday night: almost every kid in Leaside and East York grew up knowing the sexy potential of Mallory Green.
And Torontoist always encourages safe sex, but after frequent observations of discarded prophylactics on Sunday mornings we’d also like to remind the amorous to not pollute.
