The Colourway at Yonge + St. Clair
Explore the Colourway
Step into the rainbow. Colourway is only open until July 7, 2023. This all-original pedestrian walkway is constructed from 5000+ upcycled pool noodles and celebrates a month of joy, community and connection.
This colourful public landmark is one of Toronto’s most unique summer photo spots. FREE for all to visit. Find it at 1479 Yonge St., directly in front of the Loblaws (click to see Google Maps location).
Designed and built by Gensler and programmed by the Yonge + St. Clair BIA, this installation is created from 5000+ upcycled pool noodles diverted from reaching landfills.
Colourway will celebrate Pride Month with festivities in collaboration with Pride Toronto. We are proud to support our LGBTQ+ community with the vision of a more accepting, loving world inclusive of everyone.
