The Queen Street Viaduct, or ‘Riverside Bridge’ has become one of Toronto’s most iconic landmarks thanks to the public art project by the Riverside BIA in partnership with the City of Toronto, renowned Toronto artist Eldon Garnet and others.
Riverside is proud to have two independent breweries in the neighbourhood – Eastbound Brewing Co. and Saulter Street Brewery – and Toronto’s first cidery- Brickworks Ciderhouse. Each has a rich and locally-rooted story to tell and have cemented their place in Riverside as local favourites.
