So, this is my first attempt at coordinating a hike at Tommy Thompson Park.
So, if it doesn't go well, I will learn from it and improve it for another year.

Here's my general plan

  • Leave from the N.W. corner Lakeshore & Leslie at 10 AM
  • Hike for about 1.5 to 2 hours out to the lighthouse at the tip of Tommy Thompson Park.
  • We'll stop for a snack break with an opportunity 'to take in the view.'
    I prefer to not stop for a long lunch break as this area is very exposed to the the weather, should it be super sunny, rainy or windy.
  • Hike back for another 1.5 to 2 hours to get back to the start.

    This hike will primarily either be on paved park paths or gravel trails.

    In terms of hills, this hike is super duper flat.

    We'll aim for a pace of 4-5 km/h.

    There's are a few outhouses along the trail and hopefully they're open.
    There is also a Tim Hortons right beside the start point to use before or after the hike.

    Sorry dog lovers, dogs are no longer permitted in Tommy Thompson Park, so will not be allowed on the hike.

  • How to Get There:
    Event Directions:

    We'll meet at the north west corner of Leslie St & Lake Shore Blvd E on the corner with the Wendy's & Tim Hortons.

    Look for me in the BLUE Toronto Outdoor Club shirt,

    For those of you driving, the approximate address is 731 Eastern Ave (which is actually the address for the Tim Hortons). The meet point is just one block south of Eastern Avenue.
    you should be able to park for free in any of the 3 retail parking lots at the corner of Leslie & Lake Shore.

    For those of you taking the TTC:
    You can take the 83 Jones from Greenwood station and get off at the corner of Leslie & Lake Shore Blvd East.
    You can take the 501 Queen from either Osgoode or Queen Station to Leslie Stop and then its a 10 minute walk south from there to the meet point.




    Please ensure that you check the 'TTC service updates website' for any potential closures.

    Please arrive on time, I will turn off my cell phone once the hike begins.
