Cabbagetown Tour, March 10

Sunday, March 4th, 2018

Brad is leading another walk:

We are going to tour Cabbagetown where some of the first Irish settlers lived in Toronto. (St Patrick’s Day is the following Saturday.)

I found this website with a list of famous people who have plaques at the addresses they lived.

I will make a route for us to follow to see and read the plaques and tour Cabbagetown.

Meet up: 10:00AM at the Rooster Coffee House 568 Jarvis St

Sticking to our Irish theme we will go to an Irish Pub.
Stout Irish Pub, 221 Carlton St (unconfirmed)

After walk we will see how many are left and our location and find a pub.

Monday, February 28th, 2011

The runaway winner in the latest poll was Toronto Necropolis & Riverdale Farm, so we’re off the see animals and headstones! Incidentally, this was the very first “official” TOPW walk, back in November 2009 [details].

Meet: 10:00am at the entrance to the farm at 201 Winchester Street [map]
Route: Wander around the farm, and then wander around the Necropolis. (I like these simple walks!)

About 5pm we’ll heard down Sumach, River, Shuter then Sumach again to reach Queen St.
Lunch: At the farm – they have a small kitchen.
Post-walk: The Dominion on Queen (To be confirmed)

Toronto Necropolis & Riverdale Farm, November 14

Sunday, November 1st, 2009

Simple plan: meet outside Riverdale Farm, opposite the Necropolis, at the end of Winchester St, at 1pm on Saturday, November 14th.

There’s a Facebook event and it’s on GuestListApp (for those not on Facebook); it’s also mentioned in the Toronto Flickr group’s discussion thread and my LiveJournal.

(This is the first photo walk I’ve organised in a few months, although a few of us got together to shoot at Guild Inn recently.)
