Since no one else jumped at the opportunity to lead this, you’re going to have to put up with me again!

Meet Starbucks at Davisville subway station at 10 a.m., NE corner of Yonge & Davisville.

We’ll check out small sculpture garden on Davisville, then Balliol & Playfair Cres to Mt. Pleasant cemetery. Through the cemetery to the ravine and walk south at least as far as railway tracks at Summerhill. That’s the start anyhow.

WorldWide PhotoWalk 2016, October 1st

Monday, September 19th, 2016

This year’s WorldWide PhotoWalk coincides with the regular Toronto Photo Walks schedule again, so the morning will be a combined walk.

Morning: If you want to join the morning’s walk, please join the WWPW list.

Lunch: The Monk’s Table (confirmed – they’re expecting about 40 people to arrive between noon and 12:30pm).

Afternoon: I’m guessing we’ll set off about 2pm – it’s going to take a while for everyone to be fed & watered. We’ll head across Rosehill Reservoir and back into the Yellow Creek ravine. Head north, under St.Clair, and into Mt.Pleasant cemetery. There are a choice of paths, but we’ll strike generally east until we reach Mt.Pleasant Road. There we’ll walk north to Davisville Ave; west to Pailton Crescent and along Balliol St to see Al Green Sculpture Park. It’s then just a short walk north on Yonge to the pub. [Map for the afternoon]

Post-walk pub: The Wallace (confirmed)

Walk leader: Paul, cell# 647-388-5356
