SURVEY

During Summer 2022, Market Street (Front Street to The Esplanade) was pedestrianised and turned into an Urban Park with seating areas, entertainment and activities.

To collect information on how people viewed this project and the pedestrianisation of Market Street, from August 10th – Oct 18th 2022, the general public and local business representatives were encouraged to share their feedback through a survey.

The survey was promoted via on-site signage, social media and e-newsletters to businesses and the public by St Lawrence Market, Old Town Toronto/St Lawrence Market Neighbourhood Business Improvement Area and other stakeholders such as the St Lawrence Neighbourhood Residents Association.

The survey findings can be found by clicking here.
