TSA Tours: Harbourfront
A walking tour exploring the innovative buildings and whimsical landscapes of Toronto’s Harbourfront neighbourhood, a pioneer in waterfront revitalization.
Once a busy commercial harbour dominated by warehouses, factories, and seafaring merchants, Toronto’s waterfront is now a place for culture, recreation and coming together at the water’s edge.
Join us on a tour as we take a walk along the quays, slips and docks of Harbourfront, Toronto’s pioneer neighbourhood in waterfront revitalization, and uncover the stories of this multi-decade transformation through its buildings and landscapes. Along the way we will see how old industrial buildings and spaces have been transformed into some of the city’s leading cultural venues and take a look at award winning residential projects and imaginative landscapes that seek to reconnect Torontonians with their lake. From artist studios to manicured gardens, wetlands to silos, there is so much to see at the waterfront!
