ActiveTO Creates Space To Safely Enjoy The Outdoors

As the temperatures continue to rise (along with the humidity!) our thoughts turn to outdoor activities and summer fun. After being mostly housebound for the last 2 months, we are more eager than ever to receive the sunshine and fresh air.

The City of Toronto has come up with an innovative idea to encourage residents to enjoy the great outdoors, while still respecting physical distancing. Their ActiveTO initiative focuses on making extra space for people to walk, run and cycle within the city. They are making this a priority by creating quiet streets, closing major roads and expanding the cycling network. You can read more about ActiveTO on the City of Toronto website.

These major roads are closed on July 11/12 to traffic from 6 am – 11 pm:

  • Lake Shore Boulevard East (eastbound lanes only) from Leslie Street to just south of Woodbine Avenue (Kew Beach Avenue)
  • Lake Shore Boulevard West (eastbound lanes only) from Windermere Avenue to Stadium Road. As a result, the eastbound Gardiner Expressway off-ramp to Lake Shore Boulevard West (exit #146) will also be closed
  • Bayview Avenue from Mill Street to Rosedale Valley Road, and River Street from Gerrard Street East to Bayview Avenue
