I'm not sure about Lot E. However myself and other people tailgate in the parking lot behind subway and beside fresh co. Several hrs before each game. I didn't make it over to lot E during pre-season game to check it out.
We get to tailgate in a parking lot that is rubble and full of junk , man see what they the airheads have beside BMO beautiful surroundings and 4 dollar beers ! I am paying 180 bucs to park at a junkyard !?
Toronto is moving in the right direction creating a convieient area for tailgating , right outside the stadium.
Meanwhile we had an awesome tailgate spot right across the street from the stadium at Scott Park, and it has been Taken away from the Ticats and their fans. They have fenced off the area, but nothing is happening, no equipment on site, no reason it couldn't be used.
Instead we are being sent a few blocks away to tailgate on a concrete slab, full of rubble.
Thanks Mike but what I said was that Scott Park has been “taken away from the Ticats and their fans.” As you say not sure if it’s the school board or the City that owns, but nothing is happening on this property at this point except fencing it off so it cannot be used for tailgates.
Last year we were able to use even though Scott Park school was in the midst of being torn down, you would think arrangements could be made to let us use the west side of the Park this year if they do start construction…which at this point they haven’t started.
All we can do for now while it is just a vacant unkept industrial site , we can make it our own and with spirit and the J Boyz leading the way at least have as much fun as we can make it the best we can and have some fun , in seasons to come I heard they have plans for the site to fix it up green it up with sports field etc??? But what I am pissed about is the cost of parking for this lots is basically the same as we had at Scott Park we are all getting screwed on this lot parking in my books $?
For those looking for something to do a little different from the usual pre-game tailgate (assuming this rain stops by midafternoon as forecast) there is all kinds of stuff happening over at Gage Park with the It's Your Festival on there this weekend. I was thinking of heading there for a couple of hours before wandering over to the game.
Tailgating here now and I like it I stand corrected ! Concrete floor ! Less mud! , Ukranian church in distance and stadium a nice view! Fairly cleaned up! We could do a kick ass painted tiger in the middle of the lot on the concrete!!!
Sorry EE17 your wrong again. The school won't be built for ages. There's no reason we couldn't be there for another year. The only cry babys are the ones who claim the tailgate is passe and not that important, yet teams are recognizing it as a big part of the gameday experience.
We are parking in lot D and we were told by security that we cant drink there because it's private property, WTF????? So basically we have to park, then walk 10 minutes and tailgate in lot E, stupid by all and TiCats ruined it for everyone! Good job!
