Ontario LineA new 15.6-km subway line in Toronto that will run from Exhibition Place, through downtown, all the way to the Ontario Science Centre.
- Riverside-Leslieville Station
The Ontario Line will make it faster and easier for people to visit the vibrant communities of Leslieville, Riverside and Riverdale and will conveniently link to popular streetcar routes.
A night out on the Danforth, a soccer game at Exhibition Place or a trip to the Science Centre will be made easy for the 9,500 residents who are expected to live within a 10-minute walk of the new station by 2041. The station will also make it easier for people to access spaces like McCleary Playground, Bruce Mackey Park, and Jimmie Simpson Park and its recreation centre.
McCleary Playground will be approximately 300 square metres bigger because we are able to build retaining walls within Metrolinx land, closer to the tracks than the current fence. Jimmie Simpson Park will also benefit from this same treatment, with approximately 700 square metres of new green space added.
