Open Streets TO, the largest free recreation program of its kind in Canada, is is back this Sunday. Meet your community. Get active – We’re all supposed to get at least 2.5 hours of exercise per week, but many of us struggle to find good outdoor spots to do it. Open Streets TO brings new, meaningful opportunities for outdoor exercise to Toronto.
The full Open Streets TO route will run along Bloor Street from Christie to Sherbourne, and along Yonge Street from Bloor to Queen. The program begins at 10:00 am and ends at 2:00 pm.
This Sunday’s installment of Open Streets TO will feature the most extensive programming to date, including a celebration of Ontario’s 150th birthday through a showcase of many diverse forms of cultural dance represented by Ontarians. The corner of Yonge and Bloor will feature dance performances and mini lessons throughout the day from groups representing Peruvian, Latvian, Azerbaijani, Albanian and Chinese communities.
Other ‘Activity Hubs’ will be placed throughout the full length of the route, hosted by local businesses and organizations, and inviting Torontonians to participate. Some organizations involved this Sunday include Live Green Toronto, lululemon athletica, Toronto Animal Services, the Native Youth Resource Centre and the Royal Conservatory of Music.
