We started off by checking out Woodbine Beach, the largest of the four in the area. People were out enjoying the sun, playing volleyball, wading in the lake, and trying to kill each other on jetskis. We set off along the boardwalk to nearby Ashbridges’ Bay park where we could enjoy the view and do some people watching.
The final stop on our wander was Glen Stewart Ravine. Hidden in a residential area, with one of Toronto’s few remaining natural streams passing through it, the 8.5 hectare park is home to a number of plant species that are rare in Toronto. Archeologists have even found artifacts from 4000 years ago. We were grateful for the shade provided by the big oak trees. A nice cool break from the summer sun.
