Take a stroll down Winchester Street, known as “stroller alley” for the children taken to Riverdale Farm on weekends. Learn about the street’s long history connecting people and institutions—including Riverdale Zoo, Necropolis cemetery, and Riverdale Park—as the main route between the area and Toronto’s downtown before 1918.

NOTE: The tour travels mainly on flat sidewalks, but includes one steep hill.

Start Point: Eastern end of Winchester Street (200 Winchester Street)
End Point: Winchester Street School (15 Prospect Street, west-side of the building)
Cost: $10 donation suggested
