The PATH Toronto
The PATH located under Downtown Toronto is the world's largest below ground shopping complex
The PATH in Toronto is a 28 kilometre network of underground walkways lined with shopping, services and entertainment. It also provides a way for pedestrians to move around downtown Toronto and link to public transit without dealing with traffic and weather. The PATH is the largest below ground shopping complex in the world, boasting nearly 1200 shops and services covering 371,000 square metres.
It's history dates back to 1900 when Eaton's constructed an underground tunnel between their main store and the Eaton's Annex. In 1927 a tunnel was built to connect Union Station with the Royal York Hotel. Both of these tunnels remain a part of the current PATH system. In the 1960's and 70's underground malls were developed and eventually linked together.
There are PATH network maps within many of the buildings that are connected by it. The PATH has links to many Toronto buildings, hotels and attractions including Eaton Centre, Hockey Hall of Fame, Roy Thomson Hall, Rogers Centre, Air Canada Centre and Toronto City Hall. The path is also directly connected to 6 subway stations on the Yonge-University-Spadina Line. Before you go download a Map of the PATH.
