The Mimico neighbourhood borders its namesake creek and the waterfront of Lake Ontario, making it abundant with beaches, parks and natural spaces. Early twentieth century residential and commercial buildings dominate this neighbourhood and give it a small-town feel but there's lots of culture and convenience of the city within its two BIAs: Mimico Village and Mimico By the Lake.
Accessibility information: Most points of interest are visible from the sidewalk. The bridge over Mimico Creek is paved and many trails and boardwalks in the Humber Bay Park East are accessible, though some have uneven gravel surfaces. The Air India Memorial is accessible.
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.
