“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.

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.
