Day
Tripper.

One of the best things about living in Canada’s largest city is that it’s impossible to be familiar with the whole agglomeration that makes up the GTA.

  • High Park1873 Bloor St W
    Image

    It’s like a mini-Algonquin Park, but without the mosquitoes. If you just have a couple of hours, you can hike from one end of High Park to the other along the naturalized trails. Make a stop at the zoo and say hello to the llamas and deer, then hoof it uphill back into the maple trees. High Park is easy to get to from Westward – just take the subway and get off at Keele station.

  • Humber River Recreational TrailEtobicoke
    Image

    Right around the Old Mill, you have the choice of taking the north trail or the south trail. Heading north, you’ll first arrive at Magwood Park, a scenic swath of forest. From there you’ll hit Lambton Woods, James Gardens, and Scarlett Mills Park. South of Old Mill, you can ride or walk through King’s Mill Park past the Humber Marshes, and then down to South Humber Park. Peddle under the Gardiner and you’ll connect with the Waterfront Trail, which goes all the way to Niagara on the Lake – definitely more than a day trip!

  • Humber Bay ParksEtobicoke
    Image

    Start right outside your door in Tom Riley Park and walk or bike south along the creek through parkland. Although you may have to detour onto streets in a few places, you can follow Mimico Creek all the way to the lake through numerous parks. Ever heard of Canadian blues legend Jeff Healey? There’s a park named for him at a bend in the creek.

TRANSIT & CONNECTIVITY

KIPLING TRANSIT HUB

DUNDAS TRANSIT REINVENTED

Bus Rapid Transit brings seamless connections

It’s the transit improvements that will have the biggest impact on residents of Etobicoke Centre. The plan is to build 40 km. of new dedicated Bus Rapid Transit (BRT) lanes on Dundas St. from Brant St. in Burlington to Kipling Station. The new buses will connect with the subway Line 2, the Milton Go line and the Hurontario LRT (now under construction). So if you live at Westerly, you can easily travel east or west for work, fun, or shopping.

A modern new BRT line demands an equally up-to-date new subway station to provide seamless connections. That’s what’s under construction now by Metrolinx, on the site of the current Kipling subway station: the new Kipling Transit Hub. Most bus traffic will be relocated from Islington station to Kipling, freeing up more land around Islington for new buildings and homes.

Image

The Kipling Transit Hub simplifies your journey and gets you to your destination faster and more easily. It will enable you to ride the TTC, MiWay, GO Bus or Go Train, all from the same place. Express buses can whisk you to Pearson Airport.
