Our practice site is Outer harbour (480 unwin ave)

in 2021 we moved our practice site from Ashbridges Bay to the nearby Outer Harbour just west of it (to a much bigger and better practice site)!  There are several key benefits of this change - all part of the club's plan to continually improve the team and paddler experience.  

The Rusty Dragons acknowledge that we are on the traditional territory of many nations including the Mississaugas of the Credit, the Anishnabeg, the Chippewa, the Haudenosaunee and the Wendat peoples and is now home to many diverse First Nations, Inuit and Métis peoples.


Use your own maps and/or GPS to get to practice site, and see the map below for the location of parking and the closest TTC bus stop. 

IF TAKING TTC, use the TTC.ca website or APP to map out your route.  The closest bus stop is from the #83 JONES bus (stop #1238).  This bus route runs south from Donlands subway station to the last stop in that run which is at Leslie St and Commissioners Rd (the closest stop to the practice site).   From that last stop it is a 15-20 minute walk over 1.3 KM.  From the stop, walk south along Leslie St to Unwin Ave (southernmost end of Leslie St - at Tommy Thompson Park entrance), and turn right (west) and walk until you get to the one-lane bridge (that's the practice site).

IF DRIVING, note that while the address of the practice site is 480 Unwin Ave, there is no parking right at the site.  Instead, park along Unwin Ave to the east of the site as marked with a  dark blue line on the map below (north side of the road only - railway track side).  Due to construction and congestions/trucks along Cherry Street, it's better to use Leslie St over Cherry St.

Practice Site Information

See your team pages for the specific dates and times of your practices. Please ensure you arrive well in advance of the start of your practice in order to have time to park or walk the short walk to the docks.  Normally, you want to be at the dock area 20 minutes before practice so you can get your life jacket and paddle, as well as get pre-practice instructions from your coach and/or team captain.
