Walking tours of Toronto parks show off beauty of fall colours
You don't have to drive for miles to experience the beauty of the fall
colours. It's all right here in Toronto's parks.

The Toronto Parks and Recreation Division invites you to enjoy the richness of
the fall colours at walking tours of two of the city's most scenic areas.

Join Bruce Tisdale for a walking tour of the Rouge Valley on Saturday,
September 26 from 2:00 p.m. - 3:30 p.m. Then, on Sunday, October 18 at 2:00
p.m., join Frank Kershaw Director of Policy and Development for Toronto's
Economic Development, Culture and Tourism Department and co-host of the CBC
radio summer series "Toronto Treasures" for a tour of Taylor Creek Park.

The walking tour of the Rouge Valley begins at the parking lot of the Glen
Rouge Campgound, located off Kingston Road (Highway 2) just east of the Highway
401 - Sheppard Avenue/Port Union Road interchange. TTC service includes the
York Mills 95 bus from the Scarborough Centre subway station. A five-minute
walk is required from the bus stop.

The tour of Taylor Creek begins at the Haldon Avenue parking lot, located off
Cosburn Avenue. TTC service includes the Cosburn 87 bus from either Broadview
or Main Street subway stations.

These two autumn walking tours mark the end of the Toronto Parks and Recreation
Division's walking tours for 1998.
