The naming ceremony for Travellers’ Way, the TTC walkway on the east side of the Wellesley subway station, took place on April 24. This was be 11th lane naming undertaken by the Church Wellesley Neighbourhood Association, an ongoing project of the CWNA’s Placemaking Committee to create meaning in our public spaces.
"Travellers' Way" reflects the importance of the heritage building at 17 Dundonald Street that stood on the east side of the walkway. The new condominium at 17 Dundonald displays etched plaques outlining the history of the original building at the site, once home to the Commercial Travellers’ Association of Canada. The name also speaks to the many travellers who daily use the walkway as a connection to the our public transit system and our green spaces.
This lane naming was done in partnership with the Toronto Transit Commission, which owns the walkway. Councillor Kristyn Wong-Tam led the unveiling, one of her last official acts in the Church Wellesley Neighbourhood as Ward 13 City Councillor.
