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

I went for a long walk (about 10km) this afternoon and headed south to the water.

It was sunny and 23C ... so nice to get down by the water.  I went to Coronation Park first.  Usually the yacht club next to it is full of boats and it's been empty ... today was the first day I saw a lone boat in the water.

I kept going to Trillium Park and William G. Davis Trail ... I love this park and trail and try to walk here as often as I can.

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.
