“We have clearance, Clarence”, June 22nd

Wednesday, 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.

Leaderless West End Walk, June 8th

Wednesday, June 5th, 2019

Forecast for Saturday is warm, so this walk starts near the lake.

Meet at 10:00am at Queen West and Strachan Ave, near the entrance to Trinity Bellwoods Park.

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

Heading down Strachan towards the lake will take you to Coronation Park, which is where the World Naked Bike Ride starts at noon.
Nearby there’s also Fort York and Liberty Village to the south; Little Italy and Little Portugal to the north and west; and of course the start point is Trinity Bellwoods Park.

Note: Line 1 between Lawrence and Bloor-Yonge stations will be closed all day Saturday.

Scarborough Bluffs, May 25th

Thursday, May 23rd, 2019

Fingers crossed for some good weather!

Domnic suggested Scarborough Bluffs and Pauline found a route on AllTrails.com

Meet at 10:00am near the building between the main parking lots. (Click on photo to enlarge it)

FYI, the 175 bus runs down Bluffer’s Park Road, just past the meeting point.

The route follows one of the official trails north past the yacht club. There are two loops; depending on time & weather, the group might walk one or both of them. (Click on image to enlarge it)

At the east end of the parking lot, near the sailing school, there’s Bluffer’s Restaurant and the Dogfish Pub.

Bloor and Parliament, May 11th

Monday, May 6th, 2019

Michael Ishlove is leading the next photowalk:

Meet at the Tim Hortons at Bloor & Bedford (close to St. George subway station) at 10:00 am

The plan is to walk along Bloor to Avenue Road; around the Church of the Redeemer; continue east to Park Road; north to Church Street, east on Asquith Ave then south on St. Paul’s Square. Through the Manulife Garden – their garden can be quite nice, maybe even this early in the season.

Continuing east on Bloor to Sherbourne; south to Howard St; east to Parliament; head into St. James Cemetery and take a walk through some of the sections. After St. James, head to Cabbagetown and find somewhere for lunch – group decision.

Afternoon… walkers choice.

Leaderless – Broadview & Danforth, April 27th

Wednesday, April 24th, 2019

Another leaderless walk; the area was suggested by Michael Whiston.

Meet at 10:00am on Saturday, April 27th.
Congregate at Broadview & Danforth, on the south-east corner – the Tim Hortons has a blank wall where we won’t be in the way!

(Some people may be going for breakfast at New York Cafe beforehand.)

From Broadview & Danforth the group can decide where to go – there’s Riverdale Park East to the south, shuttle buses to the Brickworks just on the far side of Broadview station, or the Danforth itself.
