Garden ave + Roncesvalles ave Station can be found in the central hub of Roncesvalles Village – or “Roncy” to its friends.
This West End station has accumulated over 8,500 rides since it’s deployment on August 7, 2017. Formerly known as Little Poland, this community is celebrated for its European charm. Our station is easily identified by its colourful backdrop – Roncy’s newest mural. The mural, painted in August, 2018 by artists Philip Cote & Jim Thierry Bravo, reflects the thematic framework set out by the BIA’s Street Advisory Committee. Themes that are present throughout the imagery include; nature in the city, the urban community, and the interconnected concepts of legacy, sustainability and stewardship.
A popular neighborhood for young families, Roncy offers an array of Eastern European delicacies, cafés, independent shops and more!
