A page providing a large and small map of Toronto Canada, its streets and attractions.
I've put a larger map for the 'big picture' (mainly for drivers) and a close up for the downtown area (mainly for walkers or for those using public transport, the TTC).
Toronto is a spread out kind of city. The international airport, for example, is about 15 km to the north-west of the larger map.
Also shown are the Toronto Islands, and Island Airport, and docks, where you'll find ferries to the islands and cruise boats for harbour and island tours.
Above is the larger map showing more of the Greater Toronto Area, or GTA. The GTA extends in reality from Burlington in the south-west and out to Oshawa in the east. Visitors will also find two other descriptions of Toronto and its surrounding area.
For example, between the large GTA and the small City of Toronto is another area of the conurbation that is called Metropolitan, or Metro, Toronto. Metro Toronto has a population of about 2.5 million people.
In the GTA you'll find attractions such as Canada's Wonderland (at Maple, near Vaughan) and the Metro Toronto Zoo.
Below is the more detailed map of the City of Toronto, which is a
much smaller area and is the oldest part of the city. Here's where
you'll find heritage buildings such as Fort York, as well as modern attractions like the CN Tower, Air Canada Centre (for ice hockey and basketball), the Skydome (for baseball), and BMO Field (for soccer).
Toronto was laid out on a grid system of roads intersecting at right-angles.
A feature supposedly promoted by Governor Simcoe back at the very start of the Province. The grid is even based on kilometres when the Province was still very much using the Imperial system of feet, yards, and miles. Governor Simcoe was clearly a very far-sighted man.
