Jane’s Walk – Leaside Business Park

May 3 @ 7:00 pm - 8:30 pm

Welcome to the 2024 Leaside Jane’s Walk. This year’s theme is: Factories and Beyond: The Evolution of Leaside Business Park.
 
Date: Friday, May 3.
Time: 7 to 8:30 pm
Place: start and end at the Leaside Pub…all welcome and drinks afterwards.
Hosts: Leaside Life columnists – Geoff Kettel and Mitch Bubulj.
 
Background: Urban planners today talk a lot about “complete community”. But one hundred years ago, they delivered. Leaside was designed by the noted Montreal landscape architect Frederick Gage Todd in 1912 as a complete community. And in those days, by “complete” they meant “homes AND jobs”. Todd’s plan for the Town of Leaside designated residential uses (west side) and industrial uses (east side), separated by Laird Drive. But since then the Leaside Business Park has been in constant change mode.
 
Come walk, learn and experience the evolution of the business park closest to Toronto’s downtown. And then come and discuss the experience with fellow walkers at The Leaside Pub.
