Neighbourhood Stroll

Steeles is a neighbourhood in northeast Toronto. It is a suburban community of parks and homes built in the early 1980s, and is home to many diverse populations. This stroll takes you through the neighbourhood's green spaces, an historic Indigenous site, a well-loved local plaza, heritage buildings, and even a cultural museum. Fantastic local businesses await along Victoria Park Avenue, Kennedy Road, Pharmacy Avenue, and Warden Avenue.

Main Streets: Victoria Park Avenue, Kennedy Road, Pharmacy Avenue and Warden Avenue

Accessibility information: All points of interest are visible from the sidewalk, except for the Alexandra Site, which is accessible via the paved paths in L'Amoreaux North Park. There may be unpaved or uneven paths within the parks along this stroll.

The StrollTO itineraries may follow routes that do not receive winter maintenance. Please review winter safety tips and for more information contact 311.

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.
