Doors Open is a two day event put on by the city of Toronto, where buildings and sites not regularly open to the public “Open their Doors” giving behind the scenes tours, history and access. There are 163 buildings and sites – I have chosen four.

We will walk together from place to place ending up at Dupont station.

The hike starts from Wellesley station - NE corner, is 6.5km and will take approx. 4 hours to complete. We will also stop around noon to eat our snacks/lunch. There should be washroom access at some of the locations.

Here are the places we are visiting:
1. Elgin and Winter Garden Theater
2. Bay Lower Subway Station (under the regular station)
3. Women's Art Association of Canada
4. Toronto Archives
