Medium to Brisk Walk in the Park! Edwards Gardens (free event)

Spring is officially here, really it is, and it's time for us to begin our park walks again. We've got to walk off all of those brunch's. :) For those that like to get out and walk in a beautiful park setting, we're going to start off at Edwards Gardens. We were there for our very first meetup back in August of 2012 and we kicked off our park walks there last Spring. So let's keep the tradition growing!! For those that are fairly new to our group, this is a great and casual way to meet our friendly members!! Just see me (Alex) when you arrive and I'll make sure that you're introduced to some very nice people.

Our very first meetup back in August of 2012!!

Our first Spring Walk. April of 2013.

We will be walking while socializing for approximately 2 hours to the Sunnybrook Stables and back. Please Note, our pace will be medium to brisk, and there will be a couple of slight grades along the way. Please make sure that you are up to the fitness level needed to walk at least 4 miles. Also make sure that you're wearing comfortable footwear.

Afterwards, we usually go somewhere for refreshments. The location will be determined at the end of the walk.

We will begin gathering outside the entrance of the Toronto Botanical Garden Glass Pavillion (as seen at the top of the page) at 11:00 A.M. The walk will begin at 11:30 SHARP, so try to get there early if possible.

    The walk was good exercise. It was a little cool for my taste but it was still good. I'm looking forward to the really nice weather so I can bring my bike during the walk. LOL (Most people in the group recognizes me because I'm the only one who brings his bike during the walk.) I hope that everybody had a chance to enjoy today's weather. A lot of people came out of hibernation to get a taste of today's sunshine and warmer temperature.

  • Melanie

    Won't be able to join you on this one - beyond my capabilities at the moment.

    1 · March 25

    • Alex S.

      I can appreciate that, Melanie. How would you feel about going half way and waiting for us to get you on the way back?

      March 25

    • Melanie

      A very nice suggestion, Alex! If we were a little closer to warm, sunny, spring weather, it would be worth the TTC trip from downtown. I'd enjoy the wait in the park. As we are having what seems like the longest winter in living memory, I think I'll pass this time, and hope for better weather and moderately paced outings in the near, please let it be spring soon, future.
