Cabbagetown Walks 2018

Go outside! And a very good reason to do so is to join a guided tour offered by the CPA. They are led by experienced and knowledgeable CPA guides (volunteers). They are offered free of charge (however, a “hat” will be passed around at the end of tour - proceeds are reinvested into the CPA programs).

CABBAGETOWN: TALES OF WINCHESTER STREET
(In partnership with Heritage Toronto)

Sunday June 10, 2018 at 10:30 am
Sunday August 26, 2018 at 10:30 am

Meeting Point: east end of Winchester Street (200 Winchester Street). Winchester Street is the quintessential Cabbagetown street: quaint, tree-lined, with most Victorian architectural styles represented, including a beautifully restored hotel and the only remaining Victorian school building in the area. Winchester Street, throughout its history, connected people and institutions. Before the opening of the Prince of Wales Viaduct (aka Bloor Street Viaduct), it was an important link between Riverdale and the downtown. It was also the end of and the destination for an important streetcar line bringing people to the Riverdale Zoo, the Necropolis cemetery or Riverdale Park. Many remarkable people also called Winchester Street home: the magician Doug Henning, composer, musician, and TSO conductor Sir Ernest MacMillan, and many more.

This tour will also be offered in French. La  visite guidée Cabbagetown : la rue Winchester sera aussi offerte en français (en parterariat avec la Société d'histoire de Toronto) dimanche le 26 août 2018 à 14h. Départ de l'extrémité est de la rue Winchester (200 Winchester Street).
