Live Green Toronto Scavenger Hunt promotes walking for a clean, green and healthy Toronto
Throughout the month of October, Torontonians of all ages are invited to get walking and win great prizes in the Live Green Toronto Scavenger Hunt.

Residents may participate in up to four scavenger hunt walks any time in October. Each walk begins and ends at a Toronto Public Library and winds through a unique Toronto neighbourhood. The walks are about 2 kilometres long and suitable for all ages.

Participants follow the directions and clues on their entry card, answer simple questions as they walk, and drop their completed entry form in a drop box for a chance to win prizes. Draw prizes include: $100 gift certificates to the Running Room, MP3 Players, Live Green Toronto prize packs and more.

Scavenger hunt walks: starting points
• Downtown - City Hall Library (100 Queen St. W., at Bay St.)
• West - New Toronto Library (110 Eleventh St., at Lake Shore Blvd. W.)
• East - Beaches Library (2161 Queen St. E., at Lee Ave.)
• North - Central Library (5120 Yonge St., at Finch Ave.)

Details and entry forms are available online at and at the library where each walk begins. The last day to participate is October 31.

The Live Green Toronto Scavenger Hunt promotes walking as a clean, green and healthy way to get around Toronto, and is part of the City of Toronto’s Walking Festival that runs throughout the month of October. To promote walking, the City has developed a Walking Festival Calendar that highlights the various walking activities that will take place across the city. The calendar is available at
