Centennial Park - Etobicoke (Toronto) neighbourhoods

The east-west Burnhamthorpe bus connects at Islington station(Bloor-Danforth subway), the Rathburn Road bus connects to Royal York station (Bloor-Danforth subway) and the Eglinton Avenue bus connects to the Eglinton West station (Yonge-University-Spadina subway).
