Mimico Waterfront Park, Etobicoke, ON

I wanted to go for a walk this afternoon and ended up driving to Mimico Waterfront Park in Etobicoke.  I'd never been to this park before ... I saw it on the GPS and turned left off Lakeshore Blvd. W onto Norris Crescent towards it.  There is no parking but I found a spot on Norris Crescent.

This park lies on the Lake Ontario Waterfront between Humber Bay Park West and Norris Crescent Parkette. Its features include 1.1km of multi-use waterfront trail, headlands and cobble beaches, a small bay, boardwalks with small pockets of wetland habitat between the boardwalk and shoreline, and terrestrial and aquatic habitat enhancements to support healthy ecosystems. 

This park was created by Toronto and Region Conservation Authority (TRCA) with funds provided by Waterfront Toronto. It was developed in two phases, the first completed in 2008 and the second in 2012. It provides safe access to the waterfront, improves the ecological functioning of this section of the Lake Ontario shoreline and offers environmental, economic and social benefits to the Mimico community and broader region.

I started at the west end of the park and walked east.

I didn't see any one-legged geese when I walked back later
I turned around and went back the way I came when I got here

It was a busy park with lots to see.  It's a lovely park and a nice walk ... I'll be back!
