Getting There

Public Transit/TTC

You can take the 501 Streetcar to the Long Branch loop. From there, it’s a short walk down Forty Second Street to the Tree Fest.

BTW, the 501 line now has new, modern, high-capacity streetcars.

The #123 and #40 TTC buses also terminate at Long Branch loop, connecting via Kipling Station on Line 2 of the subway.

By GO Transit

The Long Branch GO Station, on the Lakeshore West line, is about a 10-minute walk to the Tree Fest site.

Service runs about every 30 minutes.

Mississauga Transit/MiWay

Two Mississauga Transit lines connect at the Long Branch Loop to the TTC and GO train.

  • The Route 23 Lakeshore line
  • The Route 5 Dixie Line

By Bicycle

Lake Promenade is part of Toronto’s Waterfront Trail and the Trail continues through Marie Curtis Park. If you’re cycling through Marie Curtis, you’ll pass right through the Tree Fest site.

The Tree Fest site is also accessible from Mississauga via the continuation of the Waterfront Trail. After you enter Marie Curtis Park, continue over the footbridge that crosses Etobicoke Creek, and you’ll come to the Tree Fest site.

By Car

Marie Curtis Park begins at Forty Second Street and runs between Lakeshore Boulevard West and Lake Promenade.

There is a large parking lot on the West side of the park, with access off Lakeshore Boulevard. if you are coming from the East, the entrance will be to your left just after you cross the bridge over Etobicoke Creek. If you are coming in from the West, the entrance will be to your right before you reach Etobicoke Creek.

From the West parking lot, there is a footbridge over Etobicoke Creek that will lead you right to the Tree Fest. Less than a 5-minute walk.

Parking on Forty Second street and other side streets is risky. You may receive a $30 ticket.
