Athletic Edge Sports Medicine is conveniently located close to Union Station. Union Station is in fact the busiest transport hub in Canada with 65 million passengers passing through each year via bus or railway. That’s twice the number of passengers at Pearson International Airport!
The first railway station in Toronto was a shed on Front Street (the forerunner of Union Station) and began operations on May 16, 1853. In 1858, another shed-like building was erected on the West Side of York Street (it would later be called the First Union Station). In 1866 a firm known as Great Western built its own station on the Esplande, Yonge Street. A yet larger station was built on the northeast corner of Simcoe Street and the Esplanade by the Northern Company and this became the Second Union Station. It officially opened on July 1st, 1873. The current Union Station was opened on August 6th 1927.
Union Station is accessible by the Gardener Expressway which is located between Union Station and Lake Ontario. The Go Transit often uses this route. The Fairmount Royal Hotel is located across from Union Station on Front Street, and can be accessed from the station as well as the PATH (an underground shopping mall). East of the station lies the Dominion Public Building, which came from the same era as The Fairmount Royal Hotel. Other major landmarks near the station are the Telus Tower, Hockey Hall of Fame, and Brookfield Place. The Hockey Hall of Fame would be a good place to visit if you are a sports fan.
