Want to get a better sense of what a Waterfront Toronto project looks like? Please join the West Don Lands Committee this Sunday at 11 am as it guides you on a tour of the West Don Lands site. Meeting Place: 573 King St East, Southwest corner of King and St Lawrence Streets.
The tour includes: Toronto Community Housing and River City development sites; Lawren Harris Square; the intriguing and innovative Underpass Park; the stunningly beautiful Don River Park, and; the site that will be home to the Toronto 2015 Pan Am Games Athletes’ Village. This portion of the walk will be lead by James Roche, Director of Parks for Waterfront Toronto. Dogs are welcome but must be on a leash. This section of the walk is Fully Accessible.
Then we will take a short walk back up to the Queen St. bridge and take the staircase down to the path along the Don River. Our guide to the history, present and future of the river will be Mark Wilson, former chair of the Task Force to Bring Back the Don and current chair of Waterfront Toronto. We’ll be able to watch canoes in the annual Paddle the Don event as they and we approach our destination at the Keating Channel where refreshments will be available. The long staircase down to the river from Queen St. could present accessibility problems.
