This week, we're talking about where, if you had a guest in Toronto, you'd take them to really show what it means to live in this city. Not a tourist trap. Something personal - end to end on the streetcar, the ravines, a laneway...

Bringing the High Line Back to Earth -
Published: May 14, 2011
The High Line may have become a fashionable distraction for out-of-town
visitors, it succeeds because it offers a green outlet to its many
neighbors, who, like Parisians, live in small apartments. In no other
American city do residents rely so much on communal green space, rather
than backyards, for relaxation....American cities are always looking for
quick fixes to revive their moribund downtowns. Sadly, the dismal
record of failed urban design strategies is long: downtown shopping
malls, pedestrianized streets, underground passages, skyways, monorails,
festival marketplaces, downtown stadiums — and that most elusive fix of
all, iconic cultural buildings. It appears likely that we will soon be
adding elevated parks to the list.

Happy Trails
Jul 3, 2004 |G & M | by Melanie Coulson. Taylor
Creek/Sunnybrook Park: 9.4 km from Victoria Pk. to the back of
Sunnybrook Hospital on Bayview Avenue. Starting at Victoria Park Ave.,
this route winds its way through a few smaller parks and meets up with
the massive Sunnybrook Park. It can be picked up throughout Sunnybrook
and at various spots along Taylor Creek.
Terrain: Asphalt - mostly bike/pedestrian paths, with some car traffic
in Sunnybrook Park. Parking/transit Parking at Sunnybrook, with a few
lots along Taylor Creek. The 11 and 124 buses go along Bayview to
Sunnybrook Hospital - pick up the trail behind it, at the bottom of the
hill. . Pros & Cons Good: Relatively flat, with only smaller hills
(except the massive beast at the hospital - there is parking at the
bottom for those not up to the long, windy climb). Restrooms throughout.
Not-so-good: There are a few isolated spots and the route is not well
lit, so really not an option at night.
