Yonge Street Architecture

A number of people stand on a sidewalk facing an ornate arched entrance, in front of which stands two women, one of which speaks into a microphone.

Explore the architecture of the neighbourhood that surrounds Toronto’s iconic road, Yonge Street, from a large university campus, to beautiful churches, and numerous parks. Get an in-depth look at the side streets, laneways, and the spaces between to discover a side of the area you haven’t seen before.

Meet Us At College Park!

Join us at the Heritage Toronto tent to explore the architecture of Yonge Street. Free guided tours will be offered every hour as part of DYBIA Farmer’s Market and Movie Night event.

Tours will depart from the Heritage Toronto tent every hour throughout the afternoon (3:15pm, 4:15pm, 5:15pm, 6:15pm). Tours will last approximately 30 minutes and will feature a looped route, ending at the Heritage Toronto tent.

These events are free and no pre-registration is required.

Note: Certain portions of the tours may include walking on uneven terrain. Due to ongoing construction in the area, tour accessibility may be affected. Please contact Heritage Toronto at 416-338-0684 or [email protected] for more information.
