Experience a Sense of Community at Leaside

There is a great sense of community at Leaside, and we appreciate the consistent contributions from the Leaside Towers Tenants Association (LTTA), the Getaway Club, and our own Morguard Management team, who have combined to provide a great program of events throughout the year. A wide variety of activities take place at Leaside Towers from fitness classes to social mixers.

What is the Getaway Club? The motto here is, “get out of your apartment and do something”, and all tenants are welcome to come and join! The schedule of activities is listed on our calendar and we have a wide variety, ranging from fitness activities and other social activities, such as movie nights, to educational seminars and a Coffee Stop. The sky’s the limit and there are always new ideas being added for fun activities and social gatherings here at the Leaside Towers.

Mondays and Fridays: Join us for Fit for Life from 10am-11am. This is a low-impact exercise program that includes warm-up, cardio (moderate-vigorous intensity), strength & endurance, flexibility, balance and stretching. ‎

Wednesdays: There are two types of fitness classes that alternate each Wednesday morning from 10am – 11am. Dancersize includes low impact cardio, stretching, great music and dance moves for anyone, at any level. A good portion of the class can also be done while sitting, if movement or ‘knees’ are an issue! The alternate Wednesday class is a Shibashi (Tai Chi) class.  This is a gentle, flowing and beautiful exercise that is a joy to do and works all of your muscles in a relaxed state.  

Movie Night: Movie Nights are held twice a month (the second and fourth Tuesdays) in the Party Room. The second Tuesday of every month is a kid-friendly movie – fun for the whole family and free – you just need to clean up your popcorn after the show! Enjoy a wide variety of films without any parking and ticket fees or traffic.

Potlucks: A food-focused event based on a theme or cultural celebration. Attendees bring a food dish to share and have fun eating and chatting with their neighbors while learning new preparations and favorite foods.

There are so many great events at Leaside Towers, and volunteers are welcome to assist in these fun functions. If you have some time to get involved and help out, please visit the Volunteer page and complete our Volunteer Form. Your skills will be put to good use and you will also have fun!
