Queen West and Entertainment District, November 26
Thanks to Georgette for planning this walk.
Date: Saturday 26th November 2011.
Meet: 10:00am at the front gates of Trinity Bellwoods Park at Queen Street West and Strachan Avenue. The Queen West streetcar (the 501) has a stop right there at the gates. [map]
If the weather is, um, "typical" in the morning, there are two cafes directly across the street from Trinity Bellwoods:
The White Squirrel
907 Queen Street West
915 Queen Street West
Morning route: Loop up and through the park then make our way eastwards along Queen Street West. We’ll duck through a portion of Graffiti Alley and over to Bathurst Street and down to King Street West.
Lunch: Wheat Sheaf (reservation is for 12:00)
667 King Street West (416)504-9912
Afternoon: we’ll go down to the Bathurst Street bridge at Front Street to check out some of the skyline for photos, then move along Front Street over to Spadina. North on Spadina to King Street and along there to the TIFF Lightbox and Roy Thomson Hall. We can then move north along Simcoe back up to Queen West, go west along to John Street and north up to Grange Park. St. George the Martyr Church is nearby too and is very lovely and pictureful as my friend Joanne would say. We’ll come back down along McCaul to Queen Street West and over to the Campbell House then over to the grounds at Osgoode Hall.
Post-walk: Duke of Richmond for 5:00pm
20 Queen Street West (416)340-7887
