Neighbourhood Stroll

This neighbourhood, located just north of High Park, offers a fascinating past, several true architectural gems, proximity to both some of the best green space in the city and excellent main street businesses. The eastern portion of the neighbourhood, known as the West Bend, features a unique character thanks to its historic role as a manufacturing centre and settlement for new immigrants to Toronto. The stroll features sites significant to the Ukrainian-Canadian community like the Taras H. Shevchenko Museum, the notable Indigenous history of Indian Road, and fantastic greenspaces such as Lithuania Park. Some spectacular pieces of public art can be found along the way with the murals in Ravina Gardens and the 'We Are All Animals' installation. Plenty of great local businesses can be found along the stroll in the Bloor West Village and Bloor by the Park BIAs.

Main Streets: Bloor Street West and Dundas Street West

Accessibility information: Most points of interest are viewable from the street and/or park paths, though there are stairs involved in entering the portion of Ravina Gardens where the murals are located.

Soundtracks of the City

From global superstars to local favourites and ones to watch, the Soundtracks of the City playlists all feature artists who have called Toronto home. Whether it’s a lyric about the neighborhood, an artist representing a cultural community, or a tie-in to the StrollTO itinerary itself, all the music reflects connections to an individual ward or the City as a whole.

Music was chosen based on an artist’s Spotify presence and each song’s broad appeal, as well as its associations with the cultures, languages and ethnicities that reflect Toronto’s neighborhoods and diverse music scene. Soundtracks of the City combines 425 songs that feature more than 500 different local artists or acts, showcasing songs in 23 different languages.
