Ride the 514 Streetcar to the City’s Newest Neighbourhood


At last, the cage surrounding The Canary District has come down

The TTC’s newest 514 streetcar line zips straight to the city’s next hot ‘hood: The Canary District. After being fenced off for the past year, the former Pan Am Athletes’ Village is now a hub for all things health and wellness. The Cooper Koo YMCA features a range of modern fitness amenities, while the extra-wide Front Street Promenade is perfect for an urban stroll, lined with such whimsical sculptures as a bouquet-like cluster of lamps by Tadashi Kawamata.
