ActiveTO hit fast forward on the City’s plans to redesign Danforth Avenue. In 2020, a space was created that considered business needs, mobility needs, and the long-term planning goals for the area. In the process, it became a road for people of all ages and abilities, whether they are walking, driving, taking transit, or biking. 

Now, there are new parking spots, protected bikeways, and places to sit and enjoy the street. Patios, artwork, and planters line Danforth enhancing the atmosphere and highlighting the communities through which it runs.

In the year since installation, the western portion of Danforth has continued to evolve through conversations with local businesses, community groups, and local residents. In these conversations one thing has been made clear: the redesign is popular!

What’s next?

A similar design on Danforth up to Victoria Park Avenue  — the edge of Scarborough — has been approved through ActiveTO for installation in 2021. This still needs to be made permanent. 

It’s time to get Scarborough connected with protected bike lanes. With support from local businesses, residents, and community groups, Scarborough can have streets where cycling is as easy as it is in East York.
