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

I went for a long walk (about 10km) this morning and headed south to the water.  I haven't been out much in the last couple of months and I miss my walks.

Lakeshore Blvd. W is down to two lanes (rather than the usual four).  The south two lanes are closed for pedestrians and cyclists.  When I got there around 10ish, it was fairly quiet.  On my way home a couple hours later, it was more crowded.

I started off at Coronation Park.  It was nice to get down by the water.  There still aren't any boats on the water, though that should be changing soon.   The only boat was a police boat.

I kept going to Trillium Park and William G. Davis Trail ... I love this park and trail and it's been closed for a couple months because of Covid-19 (it just reopened on Friday).

The Trillium Park and William G. Davis Trail is 7.5 acres of public green space on a spectacular part of Toronto’s waterfront. Previously a parking lot, it’s now full of life, ready to be enjoyed by morning joggers, picnic-goers, strolling families and everyone in between.

The 1.3 kilometre trail is named in honour of Bill Davis, who was the Premier when Ontario Place first opened in 1971. It’s surrounded by thousands of native trees, plants, flowers and beautiful sedimentary rocks and boulders. Inspired by the Ontario landscape itself, the park was designed in consultation with people from across Ontario, including the Mississaugas of the New Credit First Nation. It’s a breathtaking tribute to our province and a gift to the people who love it.

  7. Summit

Ontario Place is open again so I walked in around there.

So strange not to see boats docked

I headed back through Trillium Park and William G. Davis Trail.  It had clouded over and got a bit chillier.

Heading for home up Strachan Avenue, I came across a police officer on a horse.  Hello!

We're supposed to get a lot of rain over the next couple days so it was nice to get out this morning.
