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.

Sunset on the Islands, August 10th

Tuesday, August 6th, 2019

It’s been over a year since TOPW last ventured over to the Islands, so Michael has suggested this plan for a sunset walk:

Meet at Tim Hortons (12 Queens Quay West) at 6pm.

Take the ferry or a water taxi to Wards Island. (Ferry is $8.19; water taxi is $10.00 cash one way, I believe, but we can take the ferry back at no charge.)

Grab a bite to eat at Toronto Island BBQ & Beer Co (unconfirmed)

Sunset is at 8.29pm. We will head towards the Centre Island Pier and then west along Lakeshore Ave to the west side of the Island. (West of Captain Mori Beach)

Old Mill leaderless walk, July 27th

Tuesday, July 23rd, 2019

Meet at 10:00am at Old Mill subway station. There’s an island in front of the station’s doors but it’s not TTC property, so it should be ok to meet there.

From there the walkers can decide where to go; there’s a trail beside the Humber River to the north and south, King’s Mill Park and Park Lawn cemetery to the south-west, or other options as the group decides.
