Ashbridges Bay Park Canada Day Fireworks Display

The City of Toronto is again hosting its annual Canada Day fireworks display at Ashbridges Bay Park, starting at 9:45 p.m. Saturday, July 1. The park stretches along the south side of Lake Shore Boulevard East between Woodbine and Coxwell Avenues.

The City expects that more than 80,000 people will visit the park and other nearby Eastern Beaches to watch the skies light up. It’s encouraging everyone to leave their cars at home and walk, cycle or travel by transit to and from the event.

To handle the crowds, the TTC usually increases service to the park and the Beach neighbourhood by operating more buses and streetcars along nearby routes throughout the afternoon and evening.

Transit agencies may interline two or more routes with common terminals to save resources - drivers and vehicles. This Canada Day, the TTC is interlining the 31 Greenwood and 92 Woodbine South routes at two different terminals. When a southbound bus operating along the 31 Greenwood route arrives at the terminal, it continues along the 92 Woodbine South route. It completes a round trip along that route, then returns to the terminal before continuing a northbound along 31 Greenwood.
