Hi Everyone, Get ready for one of our top walks of the year!! On Saturday, June 14th we will begin gathering at 11:00 behind the beautiful Sunnyside Pavilion Cafe' (beach side) located in Sunnyside Park between Parkside Drive and Colborne Lodge Drive. At 11:30 AM we will begin to walk westbound along the Sunnyside Boardwalk. Before long we will get to the White Bridge that crosses the Humber River. After that the route will be more on gravel and we will enter the beautiful Butterfly Habitat.
For those that want to go on from there the walk continues into Humber Bay Park. The terrain becomes a little rougher but this is where it gets more naturally beautiful with wild flowers and colourful birds and other wildlife. If you make it to the end you will get to see a fantastic view of the Toronto Skyline.
Afterwards we'll take the same route back to the Sunnyside Pavilion Café for refreshments, relaxation and further socializing. If we're lucky we'll be able to sit on their patio facing the beach. I'll do my best to arrange that for our group.
The (full) walk/hike will take close to 2 hours and we'll end up where we started. If you wish you can always turn around at the Bridge or the beginning of the Butterfly Habitat and we'll all meet back at the Sunnyside Pavilion Café. You can do whatever is comfortable. There are no rules.
***THIS JUST IN*** If the Sunnyside Pavilion Café is closed for renovations RONCY ROCKS will be our Plan B. It's not too far away and it looks like a lot of fun!! http://roncyrocks.com
