Cathy and I took three Toronto walks in the last few days. Walking the trails at the mouth of the Credit River and the old streets of Port Credit brings me back to my childhood growing up there. The newish Tom Thompson Park at the Leslie Spit shows what imagination can shape from 50 years of excavation dirt and rock from all of the high rise construction in downtown Toronto – the man made spit into Lake Ontario and lagoons are abuzz with bird life and from what we could see quite a few beavers. And the Brickworks and Belt-line Rail-to-Trail in the Don Valley is a tribute to a by-gone industrial era along the Don River. Try these hikes – we certainly liked each and recommend them. Here are some pictures.
