Doors Open – Queens Quay Revitalization

Join Waterfront Toronto and our construction partners on Saturday, May 25 for a unique Doors Open experience. Take a “behind the construction fencing” look at Queens Quay – one of the city’s most significant revitalization projects. Perfect for families, construction and urban design enthusiasts, Queens Quay is this year’s only Doors Open location that will open up a construction site to give you a look inside. From huge sanitary sewer pipes, to new tree planting techniques, participants will be able to see, touch and learn more about what it takes to rebuild a major city street. It’s also the perfect place for kids to play in the sand and have a picture taken with the impressive construction equipment on the site. Don’t forget to stop at the construction trailer for a behind the scenes tour and a look at the massive construction drawings for the street. Designed to transform Toronto’s main waterfront street into a world-class boulevard, the $110 million revitalization of Queens Quay Boulevard is well underway. Stretching 1.7 kilometres, from just west of Lower Spadina Avenue to just east of Bay Street, construction crews are completely rebuilding and revitalizing the area. Doors Open on Toronto's Waterfront Toronto's waterfront will be bustling with activity during the Doors Open weekend. Visitors will have an opportunity to tour the Toronto Police Marine Unit where a 16-vessel fleet handles rescue and response calls on Toronto's waterways. The William Lyon MacKenzie Fireboat will also be on display. At the water's edge, 15 ships will have their gangways open allowing visitors to tour some of Toronto's most majestic vessels. Back on land, at Queen's Quay Terminal, a unique photo exhibit featuring over 100 archival images will showcase the fascinating history of Toronto's waterfront. Doors Open on Toronto's waterfront is presented by the Waterfront BIA.
