Meet: 10:00 am (on Saturday April 22nd) at the Grenadier cafe.

Morning: Shoot the trees and anything else that moves until noon.

Lunch: Head over to the Swan & Firkin, 2205 Bloor West for 12:30pm

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]
