Nature Walk to Don Valley Brickworks Park – Intercultural Learning Program

When: October 11, 4-6 pm
Where: Please meet us outside St. George Station on St. George Street (please note: this is not the Bedford entrance across from Starbucks) at 3:30 pm. We will get on the subway at 3:40 pm. 


Living in the city we often forget to see the wonder of nature around us. Toronto is blessed with natural spaces in the form of ravines formed due to retreating glaciers from the last ice-age. The city’s history of urban development is closely intertwined with the topography and geology of this land.

This walk starts at North St Jamestown and weaves through Rosedale into the Don Valley Brickworks Park. As we walk we will engage in conversation around the history and politics of urban planning, factors that impact the social fabric and physical development of a neighbourhood, and opportunities and barriers for diverse social, economic and ethnic groups to access nature in the city. At the end of the walk there will be time for discussion and reflection at the Evergreen Brickworks.

The walk will take place rain or shine. Wear comfortable walking shoes, warm clothing, and carry your own water bottles. Light snacks will be provided.
