How to get to the Spit

The Spit is open year-round every weekend (except Christmas, Boxing Day and New Year's day) between 9:00 a.m. and 6:00 p.m. from April - October and 9:00 - 4:30 p.m. from November to March. Park on Unwin or Leslie; or if in parking lot, be sure to exit by closing line, as lot is barricaded after hours.

Located about seven kilometres east of Harbourfront, the Spit is easily accessible by bicycle, on roller blades and even on foot (for enthusiastic hikers) via the Goodman Trail (recently renamed Waterfront Trail).

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). To get to the Spit by car, take Lakeshore Boulevard to Leslie Street, turn south and continue to the gate. You can print this page to take with you when you go to the Spit. See you there!

Flat smooth road for the first 3 km.

IMPORTANT: Dogs 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.
