The closest public transit access is by the 501 Queen St. Streetcar (get off at Leslie St. and go south on Leslie St.). It is about 1.5 km to the gate.
Cars are not allowed onto the Spit. Parking available at the gate (see map below).
Don’t bring your pets: they are not allowed on the Spit.

Pets are not allowed anywhere on the Spit. Their presence is very disturbing to wildlife and they create a hazard on the road which is used by walkers, cyclists and ‘bladers.
