The Toronto Police Service would like to make the public aware of upcoming traffic restrictions and security enhancements for the week of Thursday, April 12, to Thursday, April 19, 2018:
- Saturday, April 14, 5:30 p.m., restrictions for Jurassic Park
- Saturday, April 14, 8 p.m., restrictions for Maple Leaf Square
- Monday, April 16, 7 p.m., Air Canada Centre, Maple Leaf Square and Rogers Centre

- Wednesday, April 18, 7 p.m., Rogers Centre
- Thursday, April 19, 7 p.m., restrictions for the Air Canada Centre and Maple Leaf Square
To ensure the safe flow of pedestrian and vehicular traffic, a number of road restrictions will be in effect in the immediate area surrounding the Rogers Centre and Air Canada Centre.
Please be reminded, for those attending the Rogers Centre, that Rees Street, northbound, from Lakeshore Boulevard West will be used for accessibility vehicles and other mobility-accessible services. A staging area for those using accessibility services will be set up on Rees Street, at Bremner Boulevard, for Gate 7, and off Blue Jays Way, in front of the Marriott hotel, for Gate 13. Rees Street will also be available for those patrons parking at the Rogers Centre.
For those using accessibility vehicles and other mobility-accessible services when attending the Air Canada Centre, it is recommended that Bay Street Gate 2 be used, as turning around in the square on Bremner Boulevard will be very difficult.
Police, in partnership with the Rogers Centre and Air Canada Centre, are encouraging people to use public transit or other carpool options.
The public may also notice other security measures in the surrounding area, including an increased police presence and/or the use of other public and private sector resources.
While there is no imminent threat at this time, security issues are closely monitored and changes will be implemented as required.
Staff Sergeant Matt Moyer, of 52 Division, will be available to speak with the media about these traffic restrictions and security enhancements on Friday, April 13, 2018, at 11:30 a.m., out front of 52 Division, located at 255 Dundas Street West.
