A pedestrian crosswalk across Carlton Street at Homewood Avenue would better integrate Allan Gardens with surrounding neighbourhoods. Many people cross the street at this location. A formal crosswalk would also increase safety along this stretch of busy Carlton Street. Please note that the south side of Allan Gardens has a crosswalk across Gerrard Street East at Pembroke Street. However, the north side of the park does not have a crosswalk unless people go to Jarvis Street or Sherbourne Street.

    How about a pedestrian bridge. Pedestrians safe, vehicles flow.

    This is a great idea, as many people run across the street here.

    Love this idea. I hope someone makes it happen. Many Homewood residents use the park daily. Fingers crossed.

    I would suggest the crosswalk be just west of Homewood Ave. This would allow people turning left to exit off Homewood while the crosswalk is being used and enable people to turn right onto Homewood from Carlton as well.

    Something should be there. Crosswalks scare me. Too many people blow through them. I’d love to see a traffic light but anything is better than the nothing there now.

    Great idea! A crosswalk in this location is long overdue. Lots of pedestrian traffic cross here daily.

    This should have been implemented long ago! Safety for the neighborhoods pedestrians.
