Kipling Avenue

Kipling Avenue is a street in Toronto, Ontario, Canada. It is a concession road, 6 concessions (12km) from Yonge Street, and is a major north-south arterial road in the former city of Etobicoke, Ontario. Most of the road traverses residential neighbourhoods and pockets of industrial and commercial hubs. The street goes through such areas as New Toronto, Etobicoke Centre, Richview, and Rexdale.

The street is named in honour of Rudyard KiplingFact|date=February 2007, author of such works as "The Jungle Book" and the "Just So Stories".
