Leaside Park is a new addition to the TNS stewardship sites for 2023. It is a 0.5 hectare thin strip of mostly wooded land bounded by a paved path to the north (separating the park from a mowed baseball field and some allotment gardens), Millwood Rd to the west, and a parking lot to the east. The south border is undefined but appears to be the border between a flat plateau and a steep and eroded slope leading down to the Don River.

The west end of the site features some colourful chairs with a great view of the city skyline.

Issues at the site include litter, soil compaction due to wide footpaths, soil erosion and invasive species including buckthorn and dog-strangling vine.
