Toronto Expanding ActiveTO Summer Programming

Published:

This summer, cyclists and pedestrians can stay active by taking full advantage of Toronto’s car-free streets.

This month, the City is expanding its popular ActiveTO program and will stage a minimum of four closures on each weekend in July, including a one-day closure of a portion of Black Creek Drive on July 17.

The City is restoring some previous routes like Lake Shore West along with adding some new closures, including Exhibition Place, Black Creek Drive, and the Meadoway in Scarborough

“ActiveTO continues to be a popular and successful program that supports Toronto’s ongoing response to the COVID-19 pandemic. The July schedule clearly shows how determined we are to come through on our promise to provide more space to more people, at locations around our city on weekends, and to keep flexible and enjoyable routes,” Mayor John Tory said in a press release accompanying the July schedule.
