Downtown Toronto

Downtown Toronto is the vibrant, dynamic core of the GTHA (Greater Toronto Hamilton Area).  Thousands of people live work and play in the downtown.   Lets discover a little bit of what this important heart of the largest Canadian city has to offer.

The Downtown core can be roughly defined as running from the renewed urban pathways of the Don Valley River to the east, to the largest park in the city, High Park, in the West, and from one of the world's largest freshwater lakes, Lake Ontario, up to a world renowned luxury shopping area of Bloor Street in the north. Within that area live over 350 000 people, in a mix of  condominiums, apartments, townhouses, row houses, single family dwellings and duplxes.  Whether it be families from South America, singles from the inner suburbs, or retired couples from the United Kingdom - the mix of people from all over the world in the Downtown of Toronto provides a unique dynamism and quality of life unsurpassed in the rest of the world.

PATH is downtown Toronto's underground walkway linking 28 kilometres of shopping, services and entertainment. Follow PATH and you'll reach your downtown destination easily in weatherproof comfort.

PATH provides an important contribution to the economic viability of the city's downtown core. The system facilitates pedestrian linkages to public transit, accommodating more than 100,000 daily commuters, and thousands of additional tourists and residents on route to sports and cultural events. Its underground location provides pedestrians with a safe haven from the winter cold and snow, and the summer heat.
