We are excited to announce Garrison Crossing is now open for all to use! On October 1st, Mayor John Tory officially opened Garrison Crossing with local Councillors Joe Cressy and Mike Layton and representatives from the City of Toronto, CreateTO and Dufferin Construction Company.
Led by CreateTO on behalf of the City of Toronto, the stainless steel bridge project is the first of its kind in Canada. Garrison Crossing includes two bridge structures spanning two rail corridors in the downtown core. The 52-metre northern bridge structure spans from the South Stanley Park extension over the Kitchener rail corridor and lands on the north side of Ordnance Park. The 49-metre southern bridge structure spans from the south side of Ordnance Triangle Park over the Lakeshore West rail corridor, landing in the grounds of the Fort York National Historic Site.
Garrison Crossing creates a vital connection linking the park system between Trinity Bellwoods Park in the north and the Fort York grounds in the south, and fosters stronger community networks in and around the City, Fort York and the waterfront.
The crossing's bridges and trails will be maintained by the City's Transportation Services and Parks, Forestry and Recreation divisions.
Please note the current access points to the bridge are located
on Wellington St. West and the Fort York grounds.
