Ward 28: Toronto Centre-Rosedale
Welcome to Ward 28 - we are in the heart of the city, and boast some of Toronto's best bike infrastructure, from the Sherbourne cycle track to the Lower Don Trail and most recently, the bike lanes on Richmond and Adelaide. Yet there is still a lot of work to do. Come out and get to know us. We are looking to grow our advocacy group, and what better way than by coming out and meeting us. We try to meet on the second Wednesday of the month at the Regent Park Community Centre (402 Shuter Street) - check our Facebook group for updates and details.
