It’s been a long time coming, but soon subway trains will be on their way to one of Canada’s finest heritage villages. Surrounded by development, Black Creek Pioneer Village is a living tribute to the TORONTO Region’s roots, with architecture dating as far back as the 1790’s.
On-site there are 40 buildings considered to be amongst the oldest in TORONTO and its surroundings. Inside several of them, interpreters and artisans in period costume describe life as it was lived in pioneer Canada.
BLACK CREEK PIONEER VILLAGE is open daily from May 1 to December 23. It’s located in TORONTO’s north-west end, at 1000 Murray Ross Parkway near the intersection of Jane Street and Steeles Avenue.
GETTING THERE BY PUBLIC TRANSPORT – subway to FINCH STATION, then take the Steeles bus #60 westbound; or from JANE SUBWAY STATION use the Jane bus #35.
