FREE activities for babies in Leslievlle - October 2011

Now that the weather is turning, I've been looking into playgroups and drop-in activities in the 'hood for those days when the cabin fever sets in.


I've compiled a handy "week at a glance" style listing of the free activities for babies in Leslieville.  I know, the Edgewood Connection and the South Riverdale Parent/Child Centre aren't "technically" in Leslieville, but they're close enough.


You can download my PDF here.  And please let me know if there's anything I've missed that can be added.  Hope to see you out and about at some of these activities!

Actually, after posting I discovered that Matty Eckler is closed for renovations so it's Jimmie Simpson Mondays - Thursdays.

Fantastic!  Thanks Helen.  I'll add those to my November list.

There are also drop ins between 9:30 - 11:30 on Tuesdays & Fridays at the gym in Jimmie Simpson and Mondays and Wednesdays at the gym in Matty Eckler. Lots of space for mobile babies to move about.

Hey LW - there were a few mentions of walking groups on the Leslieviller about 6 months ago, but nothing in a while.  Maybe post something in the Moms and Dads group?

And if you'd like, I'd be happy to walk with you anytime.  My little gal is 7 months, and loves to stroll.  =)

Thanks so much Avery!  Very helpful.  Ever heard anything about a walking group in the 'hood?  My little babe is about 10 months and I'm looking for a regular group to scoot around with once a week (+) to get some fresh air and exercise.

Absolutely!  And if you see me and my daughter Clara out at any of these activities, be sure to say hi.  =)

Thanks Nolin!  I'd rather keep the file as a PDF, so people can download it, print it off, and have it handy.  That's what I did over here - I put it on my fridge so I can see what's up each day.


I hope to update it whenever necessary, and then I'll post a new file.


And PDFs aren't un-search engine friendly.  They're just slightly less than HTML.  I have the file featured prominently on my blog, so I figure that helps too.

awesome resource, Avery! interested in maintaining a web version here on the site? might be a little more search engine friendly than the PDF version.

When I launched this site in early 2009, one of the compelling reasons for doing so was that I was struck by how many of the businesses in Leslieville are locally owned and operated.  Another big observation was (and still is) how proud most…
