Sunset on the Islands, August 10th

August 6th, 2019

It’s been over a year since TOPW last ventured over to the Islands, so Michael has suggested this plan for a sunset walk:

Meet at Tim Hortons (12 Queens Quay West) at 6pm.

Take the ferry or a water taxi to Wards Island. (Ferry is $8.19; water taxi is $10.00 cash one way, I believe, but we can take the ferry back at no charge.)

Grab a bite to eat at Toronto Island BBQ & Beer Co (unconfirmed)

Sunset is at 8.29pm. We will head towards the Centre Island Pier and then west along Lakeshore Ave to the west side of the Island. (West of Captain Mori Beach)

Old Mill leaderless walk, July 27th

July 23rd, 2019

Meet at 10:00am at Old Mill subway station. There’s an island in front of the station’s doors but it’s not TTC property, so it should be ok to meet there.

From there the walkers can decide where to go; there’s a trail beside the Humber River to the north and south, King’s Mill Park and Park Lawn cemetery to the south-west, or other options as the group decides.

“We have clearance, Clarence”, June 22nd

June 19th, 2019

Sorry for the walk name – it’s an Airplane reference 🙂

Meet at 10:00am at the north-west corner of Clarence Square – the park is on Spadina Ave, just south of King St W.

This is a leaderless walk, so the walkers will decide which way to go.

From Clarence Square, you have Graffiti Alley and Chinatown to the north, the Entertainment District to the east, the waterfront to the south, and the Fashion District to the west.
There’s also Fort York to the south-west, where the Na-me-res Traditional Powwow starting at 11am.
