Friday, June 2, 2017 from 4:00 – 8:00pm

It’s a simple idea – open up our local neighbourhood streets to children and youth so they can connect with friends and play right outside their front door.

The Toronto StreetPLAY Pilot Project (TSPP) will test regularly scheduled, partial closures for street play on 6 residential blocks between June and November 2017. The purpose of the project is to test a permit program for regularly occurring street closures to support neighbourhood outdoor play. The

The first phase is being rolled out TODAY – June 2

All kids from the neighbourhood are welcome to play on these streets!
