Beltline to Mount Pleasant Cemetery, September 28th

Sunday, September 22nd, 2019

Our next photowalk will be hosted by Michael Whiston.

Date: Saturday, September 28, 10:00am – 4:00pm

NOTE: Michael Whiston has postponed the Beltline walk to Sunday (Sep29) due to weather conditions, transit disruptions, protests etc.

Meet: 9:30am at Timothy’s World Coffee, 1070 Eglinton Avenue West, at the northeast corner of Eglinton Avenue and Old Park Road.

There is no access to the sidewalk on the north side of Eglinton Avenue, to the east of Eglinton West Subway Station. Pedestrians must go west from the subway entrance across the end of the Allen Road, south across Eglinton Avenue, east to Everden Road, south to the entrance to Ben Nobleman Parkette, northeast to the south side of Eglinton, east along Eglinton to the southeast corner of Eglinton and Glen Cedar Road, north across Eglinton to Timothy’s.

Morning: For those who are ready to walk right at 10:00am, we’ll head to the start of the Kay Gardiner Beltline Trail at Allen Road, and then head east on the Beltline. For those who may still be finishing their coffee at 10:00 am, we’ll walk north from Timothy’s along Old Park Road to the Beltline. The entire group will then head east along the Beltline to the northwest corner of Mount Pleasant Cemetery (on the east side of Yonge Street). By this time, everyone will be hungry and thirsty—or vice versa.

Lunch: 12:30pm at The Bull: A Firkin Pub, 1835 Yonge Street, on the east side just north of Merton Street.

The Bull (and Yonge Street) can be accessed by going north on Al Green Lane to Merton Street, west on Merton to Yonge, and north on Yonge to the pub.

Afternoon: We’ll wander through the portion of Mount Pleasant Cemetery west of Mount Pleasant Road, ending back at Yonge Street. For the hardiest of photo walkers, a pub can be found further down Yonge Street.

Contact: Michael Whiston’s mobile at 647-939-2546 or Jeff Stewart at 416-423-2910.

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]
