Grange Park Picnic, August 5th

Friday, August 4th, 2017

Vicki has organised an evening event:

Meet at 6:30pm – Grange Park (just behind the AGO)

Photography/Music/Play

Things to bring: blanket, folding chair, park games (frisbee or such), your own picnic dinner, musical instruments, cameras.

Musical jams and taking photos in and around the fabulous newly opened park, sit and eat. Later, when all the little kiddies go home, the larger, very interesting play equipment will be open for teens and adults to play on and get pics. Grange has put in amazing lighting, so it is great for night shots.

Could head to a pub later.

Tommy Thompson Park, July 15th

Tuesday, July 11th, 2017

Thanks to Brad for organising & leading the next scheduled photowalk:

Meet: 10:00 AM Gate at Tommy Thompson Park

Route: We will walk along the lake side and take the side trails to the tip of the park. We will have lunch at the tip. We will return on the Toronto side and take the side trails back to front gate.

Lunch: There is nothing in the park so you will need to pack a lunch and extra water.

Bring your macro lens for close up shooting of bugs and plants. Bring your long lens for wildlife photos.

Post Walk: We will see how many are left and discuss a spot to meet up on Queen St.

Don River Trail, July 8th

Thursday, July 6th, 2017

Geoff Leat suggested this walk as so many people were busy with Canada Day celebrations last weekend:

Meet: 10:00 am at Broadview Espresso, the coffee shop one light north of Broadview Station.
(If anyone wants an early breakfast, there’s the New Yorker south of Danforth)

Bring water and sun protection.

I can lead the back way into the trail that goes south down to the lakefront base of Bayview below King.
We will cross Gerrard, Dundas and Queen. Also we will be close to the Market and Queens Quay.
This makes for a great deal of flexibility for the group to vary the direction.

Lunch is where ever we choose and the afternoon as well.
