The Memorial site is located at the corner of Queen’s Park Crescent and Grosvenor Street in the City of Toronto.
The Toronto Marathon is held on the same day as the Memorial and there will be numerous road closures. Extra care is needed when planning your route to Queen’s Park. To the best of our knowledge, the best routes are:
Hwy 401 (Exit at Avenue Road) – Drive S/B to Kilbarry Road. Paid duty officers at these locations will be allowing vehicles to cross between runners, which will allow vehicles to access southbound Oriole Parkway.
Don Valley Parkway (Exit at Bayview/Bloor) – Drive W/B on Bloor Street to Avenue Road. There are closures on Bayview Avenue, so drivers must use Bloor when they get off the DVP.
Hwy 427 (Exit at Dundas Street) – This is a longer route into Toronto, but there should be no road closures.
It is recommended that the Gardiner Expressway be avoided due to numerous road closures at the various exits.
