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.
