Church & Wellesley

Church and Wellesley
Intersection of Church Street and Wellesley Street.

Unlike the trashiness of the Yonge Street strip to the west and the poverty of neighborhoods to the south-east, this is a clean and well-maintained neighborhood. Toronto in recent years has celebrated its diversity, and this part of the city is no exception. Each year, this community puts on a parade to celebrate. The Pride Parade, which runs down Church Street, attracts hundreds of thousands of visitors.
