The Trillium Park, William G. Davis Trail and Ontario Place, Toronto, ON

It was such a nice day today ... sunny and about 5C.  Gord and I felt like being outside ... we haven't had much of a chance to be outside because it's been so cold.  We headed to the The Trillium Park and William G. Davis Trail, which opened during the summer.  I walked there and back often in the summer and fall ... today was the first day I was there during the winter.

We parked near Coronation Park and walked through it.

The Trillium Park and William G. Davis Trail is the province's new landmark park.

Previously a parking lot, the park and trail is 7.5 acres of public green space on a spectacular part of Toronto’s waterfront.

The design is inspired by Ontario landscapes and is the culmination of discussions with people from across Ontario, including the Mississaugas of the New Credit First Nation. As a result of public consultation, key features are included in the final design, including a pavilion and washroom facilities.

The Trillium Park and William G. Davis Trail is a first step in transforming Ontario Place into a vibrant, year-round waterfront destination.

It's a great park and the trail is about 1.3km, which loops back.

We detoured into Ontario Place which has a winter festival going on until March.

I'm glad we got outside and took advantage of the beautiful day!
