Community hub

Kimbourne Park emerged at our present location in 1929. We have been, and we remain, an important part of the neighbourhood and east end. People come to use space, to teach, to learn, to play, to dance, to sing, to act. That is what a community hub is about: creating space, supporting community in many forms.

Here are some of the community organizations that make Kimbourne Park their home:

Garden @ Kimbourne Community Permaculture Project

Kimbourne Park United Church has turned over its side lawn to Garden @ Kimbourne who are developing a permaculture garden to grow local food and connect with the community in the Coxwell/Danforth areas.

Permaculture is “permanent culture” or “permanent agriculture.” It refers to the creation of sustainable, self-sufficient, food-producing ecosystems. We strive to work with nature and garden lightly on the earth.

East End Children's Centre

For over 30 years at Kimbourne Park, EECC has encouraged a connection of community of parents and caregivers focused on optimal development for children 0–6 living in Toronto's East end.

Children, parents, grandparents and care providers come to paint, explore playdough, sing songs, play and make friends from culturally and socially diverse backgrounds. EECC is a place where the important work of caring for children is highly valued.

Toronto PFLAG

Toronto PFLAG actively assists in the recognition and growth of gay, lesbian, bisexual, transgender, transsexual, two-spirit, intersex, queer and questioning persons, and their families and friends, within their diverse cultures and societies.

Pegasus Dance Studios

For over 30 years at Kimbourne Park, Pegasus studio has been teaching children the joy and art of discovery through dance, music and art.

Rainbow Songs

At Kimbourne Park, Rainbow Songs Inc. offers exciting interactive music programs for children from birth to 5 years old. They focus on the musical development of the child.

Toronto Irish Players

At Kimbourne Park, TIP prepares and creates quality productions in drama. Over the last 40 years, TIP has produced more than 60 plays, connecting Toronto's Irish community and sharing Irish heritage with Toronto audiences by presenting classic and modern works from Irish playwrights.

MAS (Management Advisory Service)

Kimbourne Park has created space for MAS which offers a wide range of pro bono consulting services for non-profit organizations, based on the extensive knowledge, expertise and resources of their Volunteer Consultants. They do not charge fees for their services and all of their Volunteer Consultants’ time is donated. MAS is committed to helping organizations do things better, so that they can do more for the people they serve.
