Toronto's food trucks will finally have some City-sanctioned places to cool their wheels.
Global reports that a new pilot project will allow food trucks to operate in five City parks.
This is a big deal for food truck owners because, until now, City regulations have restricted them to special events and private property—though even private property isn’t always permissible, as some owners found out last year.
This pilot project, which reportedly starts on August 1 and will continue until fall, will allow participating trucks to set up shop in these parks:
All of these places, with the exception of Allan Gardens, are clustered along the waterfront, but the hope is that the City will make more locations available later.
The project is being promoted by councillors Mary-Margaret McMahon (Ward 32, Beaches-East York) and Josh Colle (Ward 15, Eglinton-Lawrence).
