2015 Bloordale Laneway Crawl


The Laneway Crawl will temporarily repurpose three Bloordale laneways (marked on the map) as space for recreation, gathering and community. The event will transform our laneways for the afternoon and turn them into pedestrian space, where local residents, businesses and organizations can lead free activities for neighbours and visitors - things like an outdoor art gallery with the Toronto School of Art, a fashion show with the Bloor-Gladstone Library, a barbecue, a sidewalk chalk zone and more.

The Laneway Crawl will take place on June 13, 20, or 27, at the same time as the Bloordale Community Improvement Association's Community Garage Sale. Before that, The Laneway Project will lead an ideas charette and brainstorming session as part of the May Day celebration on Brock Avenue on May 2. Come out and let us know what activities you'd like to see at the Laneway Crawl!
