From May through October 2015, Toronto recognized south and central Etobicoke as one of the city’s cultural hotspots. This area is home to a diverse cultural scene, engaged community, beautiful green spaces and a unique local history.

The Etobicoke Cultural Hotspot Loops are designed as a series of self-guided walking tours that encourage residents and visitors to explore the neighbourhoods.

Loop One features Lake Shore Boulevard south to the lake, encompassing neighbouhoods like Mimico, New Toronto and Long Branch. With its proximity to Lake Ontario, this loop focuses on the natural beauty of the area and includes an activity that encourages participants to spot and identify local wildlife in our waterfront parks – the plants, birds, insects and animals.

There is an emphasis on the natural environment in Sam Smith Park and the art and architecture of the Lakeshore Grounds is also featured.
Hard copies of the Cultural Loops Guide should be available in early 2016 and will be distributed throughout Etobicoke – at the Assembly Hall, Humber College, the Etobicoke Camera Club, community centres, BIAs etc.

For now, the online guide can be viewed and downloaded from the City’s cultural hotspot website.  Check out pages 35 to 55.
