This weekend, Toronto will continue to close three major roads for pedestrians and cyclists as part of the successful ActiveTO program.

According to the City, the following major road closures will be in place this weekend, from Saturday, July 11 at 6 am to Sunday, July 12 at 11 pm:

  • 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
  • Lake Shore Boulevard East (eastbound lanes only) from Leslie Street to just south of Woodbine Avenue (Kew Beach Avenue)
  • Bayview Avenue from Front Street East to Rosedale Valley Road, and River Street from Gerrard Street East to Bayview Avenue

Residents planning to use these roads should access them by bike or as a pedestrian, as nearby parking is limited and there is no on-site parking available.

Also, parking lots at Sunnyside Park, Budapest Park, and Sir Casimir Gzowski Park will be closed all weekend during ActiveTO closures.

It’s important to note that overnight parking is not permitted in these lots and any vehicles should be moved before midnight on Friday night.

The City has now implemented more than 60 kilometres of Quiet Streets, which are available to local residents throughout the city this weekend.

Curb lane closures will also be in place over the weekend to accommodate new cafés and patios for CaféTO locations throughout the city.
