    Description

    A repeat of the popular September 26th hike/heritage tour of Old Meadowvale Village, a pioneer village seemingly frozen in time, protected by a river but significantly impacted by the growing city around it. In 1980 Meadowvale Village was designated as Ontario’s first Heritage Conservation District. Joining us again will be author, story teller and memory keeper, historian and local resident, Terry Wilson, who will guide us through his replica miniature village, a labor of love for place where he grew up and for all that has been lost. After exploring his miniature Meadowvale Village, Terry will accompany and guide us through the life-size one. Taking in many of the old homes and buildings, you will never get tired of listening to Terry’s stories, as one hiker from the first tour remarked, “Terry, you have a calling.”

    Starting form the Credit Valley Conservation Authority parking we will hike part of the Glassford Trail within the Meadowvale Conservation Area and work our way East to the Old Village. Together, the hike/tour will take approx. 3 hours (5.7 km), afterwards we will take our lunch near the Conservation Authority building with a splendid view of the Credit River Valley. At this point, back at their cars, the drivers will have the opportunity to drop out. Another 4 km loop, along Levi Creek, Samuelson Circle, and Meadowvale Conservation Area trails will be offered. Transit users will also have the opportunity to drop out partway on the loop.

    Public Washrooms available inside the Conservation Area grounds that we can access before and after our village tour. Please bring minimum 1.5 L of water, a lunch or snacks, and your questions for Terry. Please also wear long pants.

    You can watch Terry’s YouTube video here: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=sv3xliKZtYE

    Terry’s marvelous two volumes of stories, a loving tribute to his late mother, Rosemary, titled, “Rosemary’s Village” 2020 & “In Rosemary’s Garden” 2021, can be purchased from Amazon.ca.

    Description

    Join me for a walk through the only Canadian national park located in a major urban centre. We’ll do a series of trails that will form a loop taking in views of the Rouge and Little Rouge Rivers.

We’ll walk south from The Pearce House, which serves as the Conservation Centre for the park, to near the 401 and the back north on the other side of the rivers. We may get the beginnings of the Fall colours.

    Route: Sorry, because of a glitch I couldn’t create a route map this time.

    How to get there:

    Driving: There are several parking lots near the Pearce House. They fill up early in the day if the weather is nice.

    Transit: Bus 86A from Kennedy Station stops at Park Road, just before the Toronto Zoo Parking lot. Transit information still lists it as Zoo Road but the stop notification is Park Road. If in doubt ask the driver for the stop before the Toronto Zoo.
