Garrison Crossing, Toronto, ON

This evening I checked out Garrison Crossing ... it opened a couple weeks ago.

It provides a connection between Stanley Park to the north and the Fort York grounds to the south.  In the past, you had to either walk down Bathurst Street to the east or Strachan Avenue to the west if you wanted to head south.

I headed south from Wellington Street across the two bridges.

The 52-metre northern bridge runs from South Stanley
Park over the Kitchener rail corridor into Ordnance Triangle Park
Looking west along the train tracks
There are great views of the city
The southern bridge spans 49 metres and runs from Ordnance Triangle
Park over the Lakeshore West rail corridor near Fort York
There are benches at the ends so you can rest and enjoy the views

It ends near Fort York. I headed back north towards Wellington Street W again.

If you want to see what it looks like during the day, check out Gord's stroll.
