This stroll through the Scarborough Village neighbourhood leads through historical sites like Washington Manse and explores local public art. Indulge in a tasty selection of cuisine including Caribbean, Middle Eastern and Asian while walking along the neighbourhood's main streets - Eglinton Avenue East, Markham Road, and Kingston Road - before stepping into the Gates Gully Bellamy Ravine that leads to the lake.
Accessibility information: All points of interest are viewable from the street except The Doris McCarthy Trail and 'Passage'. The Doris McCarthy Trail is unpaved and weather conditions could change the quality of the trail. 'Passage' is only viewable by walking one kilometre down a steep decline in the Doris McCarthy Trail. A rest area is available halfway to 'Passage' to sit and rest. The Scarborough Village Recreation Centre and Fred Johnson Park have paved pathways throughout.
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.
