RV Camping in the 416

Did you know that Toronto doesn't have one spot in the city to accommodate a bunch of RVs? The answer probably never crossed your mind. Meanwhile City Councilor Case Ootes has been pushing for it for months and finally got to make his case this week at City Hall. He thinks we're missing out on an increasing demographic of RV tourists coming to TO, and he's probably right. There are about 7 million RVs in the US, one for every 12 car owning households. Imagine if we could attract even a tiny portion of that touring crowd.

Now the question is where to put the homes-on-wheels. I've heard Walmart lets people in RVs camp out in their parking lots, but it's not something I'd want to wake up to on my vacation. Instead, Downsview Park and the CNE grounds are being proposed, since both areas connect to transit. A CNE RV park would likely offer great views of the city and become a coveted camping spot but it would be hard to forget you're cramped between two major roadways. While we are talking about people who spend much of their time on (or near) the road, an RV park in Downsview, surrounded by trees and nature, has better potential to offer travelers a getaway in the city while still in the middle of it.

Downsview Park is a former Canadian military base in Downsview, a neighbourhood in the north end of Toronto, Ontario.

Downsview Park has received the designation as a National Urban Park, and comprises a 2.4 km² (600 acres) property. Approximately 1.2 km² (300 acres) is designated for development into parkland, recreational, sportsbook, commercial, and cultural uses. The property comprises the site of CFB Downsview, a Canadian Forces Base that closed in 1994. The Downsview Airport is located on the property and is still actively used by Bombardier Aerospace which maintains an aircraft manufacturing facility in the park.
