This is a short urban hike (~7 km @ 4 km/hr; slower in case of snow/rain) . We'll meet at the Christie station entrance, and then walk to the Trinity Bellwoods Park, roughly following the Garrison Creek Discovery Walk path.

We'll then walk to the Graffiti Alley, where we'll take a small break. From there, we'll head over to the Nathan Phillips Square, where the Celebrate Toronto festival is being held to mark the city's 185th Anniversary. The St. Patrick Parade will end here. You can end the hike here (around 12 pm), or head over to the Yonge Street with me to catch the St. Patrick's Parade in action. The Parade starts near St. George station around 12 pm -- I plan to catch it somewhere around Eaton Centre (so that we stay warm inside while we wait for the parade to arrive).
