The program, which closes roadways to give people more room to move around during the coronavirus pandemic, has been taking place every weekend recently.

However, because of construction work on the Gardiner Expressway, the closure of Lake Shore Boulevard East between Leslie Street and south of Woodbine Avenue, as well as Bayview Avenue from Front Street to Rosedale Valley Road, will be cancelled for Saturday and Sunday.

The closure of Lake Shore Boulevard West between Windermere Avenue and Stadium Road will still go ahead.
