What is on the Ground? April 28

Sunday, April 22nd, 2018

This walk was originally planned for April 14th but was postponed to April 28th because of the weather.

This photo walk theme is what is on the ground. The spring is a time when there are interesting things left over from the winter on the ground.

I am trying a new walk format for this walk. The walk will be four hours long. We will meet up and walk for 2 hours and then stop for a coffee break. We will then walk for 2 hours and finish at the pub.

Meet up: 10:00 Am at the Dundas West Subway Station

We will walk through the lane way with the graffiti to Keele St. We will then walk through High Park.

Coffee Stop around noon: Grenadier Restaurant. We will stop for around 30 minutes.

We will then continue through High Park. The cherry blooms may be starting to show.
We will then go down to the lake and follow the path to the pub stop.

Pub Stop around 2:00 PM Firkin on the Bay (68 Marine Parade Dr) Unconfirmed

Lakes and Parks Walk, May 16th

Saturday, May 9th, 2015

Date: Saturday, May 16th.

Meet: 9:30am outside the new Metro/Starbucks combo at Lakeshore and Parklawn (take bus 76A from Old Mill or streetcar 501 on Queen St). [Google map / PlotARoute]

Note: since there aren’t any lunch-like places between Mimico Creek and Grenadier Pond, the morning’s portion of the walk is a bit longer than the afternoon’s – so the (slight detour) Cheese Boutique stop will feel like a late lunch for some. If you forget/don’t want to bring your own snack/lunch, the new Metro at Park Lawn has a good selection.

Lunch: (around 1-1:30pm) Cheese Boutique (can take photos – confirmed) or bring your own/pick up something at the morning’s Metro meet point

Post-walk: Mugshot Tavern (confirmed)

Hashtag: “TOPW:LNP”

Walk Leader: Olga (416-709-0545). If you are lost or want to join us at another time during our walk, call/text so we can let you know where we are.

Remember that, although we usually plan walks to run 10am to about 5pm (depending on light), feel free to come and go whenever it fits with your schedule. [FAQ] [About TOPW]
