Normally, Canada Day is spent out with friends and families, large crowds, concerts, and other festivities. Due to the pandemic, Torontonians might have to celebrate it a little different from what they were used to.
Since Toronto entered Stage 2 of the province’s reopening plan, many businesses including restaurant patios and shops have agreed to stay open during the holiday.
If you’re really eager to have some sun, put on your mask and enjoy the nice weather out while physically distancing, of course. Here’s what’s open today in Toronto:
- Parks (except for playgrounds and outdoor exercise equipment)
- Trails for walking, biking, or running
- Fishing with a licence, boating, kayaking, and canoeing
- Off-leash dog parks
- Skateboard parks
- Splash pads
- Golf courses
- Toronto Islands (tickets must be purchased online)
- Toronto Zoo Scenic Safari Drive-Thru (tickets must be purchased online)
- Ripley’s Aquarium of Canada (tickets must be purchased online)
- Aga Khan Museum (tickets must be purchased online)
- Toronto Eaton Centre
- Restaurant patios
- TTC (operating on a holiday schedule)
- Go Transit (operating on a Sunday schedule)
All in-person events are cancelled. Check out canada.ca for the full list of virtual events and activities to celebrate Canada Day. Celebrate safely!
