Open houses will highlight details of Toronto Walking Strategy
The City of Toronto is hosting public open houses to present the highlights of the Toronto Walking Strategy - a plan to make Toronto a great walkable city.

The open houses will take place as follows:

Tuesday, March 25 - 6 p.m. to 8:30 p.m.
Scarborough Civic Centre Rotunda, 150 Borough Dr.
Scarborough Town Centre L.R.T. station

Thursday, April 3 - 6 p.m. to 8:30 p.m.

North York Centre subway station

Monday, April 7 - 1 p.m. to 9 p.m.
Sherway Gardens Mall, 25 The West Mall, Community Booth, Sears Court
#15 Evans or #123 Shorncliffe bus

Based on months of discussion with the public, external organizations and relevant City divisions and agencies, the Toronto Walking Strategy will include visionary policy, infrastructure and programming to create a rich culture of walking in Toronto.

Walking is the sign of a healthy, safe and vibrant community. Improvements to the walking environment can have significant benefits to a community, including: safe mobility for people of all ages, abilities and economic means; an improvement in air quality and reduced transportation emissions; healthier lifestyles and recreation opportunities; enhanced social interaction, as well as improved integration with other sustainable modes of transportation.
