The Lower Bay station was originally meant to divert trains from the nortbound to eastbound in Toronto's subway. However, the station was used for only half a year in 1966, and soon closed. The entrance was bricked, and the station has remained abandoned for half a century. People love mystery, and deserted areas have always provided some special intrigue for adventurous souls. The station has been repeatedly chosen as a setting for some film episodes, and occasionally opened to the public on special occasions like the Nuit Blanche Festival.

How do people get in, if the station was bricked over? In fact, there's a secret gateway through unmarked fire doors. Anyone feeling an urge to explore can check it out during Doors Open Toronto weekend in late May.
