North Entrance And North Pathway Accessibility Upgrade: Temporary Closure.
Beginning May 22, 2018, the Hart House Facility Dept., in conjunction with U of T Grounds, will start work on phase 3 of the North Path Revitalization project. During this penultimate phase of the pathway restoration, we will be undertaking many necessary AODA and facility maintenance upgrades. The scope of work will capture but is not limited to a re-grading of the largest section of the path (located between the east and west towers) to divert water away from the building, paving the length of the path to provide an even surface for those visitors with accessibility needs, replacing the temporary accessible ramp with a permanent structure, and relocating the currently ineffective drainage culvert to upgrade water collection along the pathway.

These AODA and facility maintenance upgrades will take roughly 6-8 weeks. We hope that the work is completed by July 13, 2018. During the initial stage of this project, likely the first week or two, we can expect (particularly for those using the Fitness Centre) significant noise levels as the contractors will be scraping away the existing asphalt surface before making changes to the path’s grade. For the duration of the project the path will not be accessible to anyone, all visitors to Hart House will be required to access the building from other access points.

The Tower Rd Entrance (accessible) is now open: Did you know that the Queen’s Park East Entrance (Founder’s Walk) is now accessible?  We have provided a ramp along with power assist doors for your convenience.  Please note that the north walkway is fully accessible providing clear access to Tower Rd. from Queen’s Park.
