Carmen’s Way is home to an impressive array of industrial structures, including the big green gantry that belongs to Essar Steel. But on both sides of the busy road you will also find parks, schools, and family homes.

A short detour around the noise-cancelling fences will bring you to the houses near Conmee Avenue. Some of these buildings are old homes from the City’s past. Some have been repurposed, including the Northland Adult Learning Centre, an important educational facility located in the former S.F. Howe Public School. Others are new developments. The local Habitat for Humanity built house number seven, its first wheelchair-accessible house, in this area.

If the hustle and bustle of the City is what you’re looking for, Carmen’s Way will take you there – but it’s also the perfect starting point for a leisurely stroll through our quiet neighbourhoods!

Challenge Yourself!

Think about it…

What makes a house wheelchair-accessible?

Can you see the big green gantry that belongs to Essar Steel? How do you think it is used?
