DETAILS

Language: English 

Area: High Park

Theme: Arts & Architecture

Accessibility: Family-friendly, Bicycles Welcome, Busy Sidewalks.

The walk will take place on sidewalks that are generally not busy, and the terrain is fairly flat. However, note that High Park is not an accessible station - there is an escalator going up, nut no down escalator, and no elevator. The station and surrounding area may also be busier than usual if the cherry blossom trees are in bloom that weekend.

WALK DETAILS:

Join me for a conversation about housing and density in Toronto's High Park North neighbourhood.

 

We will consider how Toronto compares to other Canadian cities when it comes to density and zoning, and we will investigate our assumptions about whether a dense neighbourhood can be a beautiful neighbourhood.
