Dundas Place

Dundas Place is a destination for shopping, dining, art, and celebration. From Wellington to Ridout Streets, Dundas Place is a flexible street shared by pedestrians, cyclists, and motorists. With extra wide sidewalks and no curbs, parking spaces can easily transform into patios, be used for sidewalk sales, or by street performers.

Dundas Place can be closed to vehicles for special events and programming, to offer more space for pedestrians and cyclists.
