Toronto’s East End Welcomes Winter Stations

Warm up to these local works of art

Winter Stations are taking over The Beaches for a third year, spicing up our east end’s waterfront in the dead of winter with art installations.

This year’s outdoor exhibits include eight installations at lifeguard stands along Balmy, Kew, and Ashbridges Bay beaches, south of Queen Street East, between Woodbine and Victoria Park Avenues. The exhibition will run from February 20 to March 27, 2017.
