A Walk Along the New Trillium Park and William G. Davis Trail
This afternoon Teena and I took a walk along the Trillium Park and William G. Davis Trail in the newly developed area of the old Ontario Place.
The Trillium Park and William G. Davis Trail is the province's new landmark park. Previously a parking lot, the park and trail is 7.5 acres of public green space on a spectacular part of Toronto’s waterfront.
The design is inspired by Ontario landscapes and is the culmination of discussions with people from across Ontario, including the Mississaugas of the New Credit First Nation. As a result of public consultation, key features are included in the final design, including a pavilion and washroom facilities.
The Trillium Park and William G. Davis Trail is a first step in transforming Ontario Place into a vibrant, year-round waterfront destination.
Approaching the trail.
The entrance to the 7.5 acre park and 1.3 km trail. We did the loop then did it again in reverse.
Here we are!
There were a few places with these purple flowered bushes which were full of Monarch Butterflies.
It's a beautiful park and I was happy to see how many people had discovered and were enjoying it. It's not the last time we'll be heading there for a nice walk.
