Green P Parking’s For You… And Your Bicycle

Green P Pedal 'N Park 37 Yorkville Avenue

The other day, I was searching for bicycle parking on Cumberland in the high-end Toronto neighbourhood of Yorkville. The few standing post and rings were full and bicycles were locked to what few fences are here so I found myself wandering out along Yonge Street and finally finding an open sign post.

After completing my errand I happened to peek into the Green P parking garage that exits out on to Cumberland and saw a concrete pad with several post and rings inside the lot.

A quick Google search revealed nothing about these Pedal ‘N Park spots so I contacted the Toronto Parking Authority and was told that these racks are free for anyone to use and that other lots do have bicycle parking. They are in the process of putting together a list of these lots and I will post them here once they get back to me.

So, if you’re ever in Yorkville, struggling to find a place to lock your bicycle, head on into the parking garage at 37 Yorkville Avenue and you’ll find free, covered and well-lit bicycle parking.

  1. City of Toronto needs a publicity department.

    Well no, that’s a waste of money, a blogger would do.

    If I was a Mayor of Toronto, running again, I would use my discretionary budget to hire a full time blogger to dig through all the spending and spread the word about good projects like this.

  2. wow! amazing :)

    thanks for sharing!

  3. That’s really awesome. I’m glad that Green P is doing stuff like this. I did notice that they have had posts to lock bikes to in the Charles St. East location, just south of Bloor. But it’s not something that is heavily advertised.

    I can’t wait to see a full listing of the Pedal ‘N Park lots.
