Hike in Taylor Creek Park

On Sunday July 5, I led my 3rd of 6 hikes for the summer. It was a warm sunny day and 52 people showed up. The route I chose went from the Victoria Park Subway Station and went through Taylor Creek Park to the Don River. I then led the hike along a biking trail known as "The Flats". The hike ended at Pottery Road and Broadview. After the hike a number of hikers went for a beverage (or two) at Whistler's Bar and Grill.

My next hike is scheduled for Sunday July 19, 1 PM, starting at Overlea Blvd and Thorncliffe Park Drive (east). It will head down the Don ending up at the Distillery District.

Map of the hike. I prepared this map for a hiker who wanted to know where the best drop out points were. These are marked on the map.

I led the hike by the Elevated Wetlands. We got to walk underneath a waterfall!

Are there any park or day fees to access Taylor Creek Park? Thanks!

Hi Tracy, I don't believe there are any fees. At least there were none when I was there about 18 months ago.
