Doors Open Toronto | Toronto Beaches Walking Tour


We're happy to have  The Beaches Walking Tour featured in this years Doors Open Toronto. This is a great opportunity for Torontonians to find out just what makes our neighbourhood work. Discover how our community was founded and how it evolved into the unique neighbourhood that we love.

Gene Domagala, a long-time Beach resident and historian, is the perfect person to lead this tour. He'll take you past historic properties, then head south on Glen Manor to the Boardwalk. You'll go as far East as the historic Balmy Beach Club and then head back to the site of the old Scarboro' Beach Amusement Park, Leuty Lifesaving Station and Kew Williams Cottage in Kew Gardens. It's about 2 Km.




The Tour begins at 2161 Queen St E, The Beaches Carnegie Library: Saturday only  10am -12pm and 1pm - 3pm


After that, you're on your own, but we hope you'll stay and enjoy the great stores and restaurants in the Beaches BIA.


If you still have time, why not visit another Doors Open Toronto location in the Beaches, or even Leslieville. I've included links to those locations below.
