After the winter that we’ve had, we suspect that there are more than a few parents with cabin fever this spring. We’ve pulled together a few great spots and ideas for fun play dates in North York. Being part of this family-friendly community means that there are lots of fun options to keep you and the kiddos busy. Here are the Greenrock Property Management team’s picks for favourites in the area.
Swimming is one of the best workouts around. On one hand, it’s a low impact exercise that’s easy on joints and muscles. On the other, it’s also a great aerobic activity that helps to keep your body and heart healthy. Here are a few nearby central Toronto locations and online resources to help you dive into this wonderful sport.
Do you have plans for Monday, April 22nd? Why, you ask? Because it’s Earth Day 2013 and we have some suggestions to help you make an environmental impact. Reducing your carbon footprint doesn’t mean that you need to take drastic measures; instead you can do your part by making the choice to shop and eat local. Best of all, the impact is two-fold as you’ll also be supporting the local economy. Greenrock Property Management has you covered for Earth Day recipes and events around Toronto and nearby the Village Green Apartment community.
With the spring we’ve had so far, can you blame us for looking towards sunnier skies and warmer days? Today on the blog we’ll cover some refreshing smoothie and juice recipes; whenever possible, we’ve tried to include locally grown and produced products.
The 20th Annual Hot Docs Festival shows over 200 films from 43 countries around the world. This year, the screenings start Thursday, April 25 and run until Sunday, May 5. The documentaries being screened are selected from over 2,000 film submissions to give you the best of the genre. Venues include theatres throughout Toronto with most of the activity happening at The Bloor Hot Docs Cinema.
Are you still making plans for this weekend? If you’d like to fill up an afternoon, we recommend checking out the Green Living Toronto Show, an annual event held at the Direct Energy Centre in Toronto. This has something for everyone including the chance to sample lots of Ontario-grown and sustainably sourced foods. The Greenrock team thinks this is also a great spot to find some home décor and eco-friendly solutions for your apartment. Attendees to The Green Living Show receive no-cost admission by bringing in an item of electronic waste, so grab that old smartphone or laptop and head over.
Have you been searching for a Toronto apartment? Finding the spot of your dreams is only part of the process. There’s also the application, the deposit and of course the lease document itself. Today, the Greenrock Property Management blog will focus on details you’ll want to check before you sign that lease.
April marks a celebration of reading across the city’s libraries. Throughout the month, the Toronto Public Library will host a variety of events as part of the Keep Toronto Reading Festival. 2013 marks the eighth celebration of reading in Toronto.
