Junction Triangle Jane's Walk 2010: Recap

Wallace CrossingWallace Crossing

Another fun event from last weekend: The Junction Triangle Jane's Walk. Approximately 30 people came out for this walking tour of our neighbourhood, which was lead by Campbell Ave. resident Bruce Ward.

We started on Wallace Ave., just outside the triangle, where the new Junction Triangle Lofts are under construction, and Ubisoft is preparing their "new" location. We then followed Wallace Ave. across the 'hood over to the West Toronto Railpath, down to Sterling Rd. and Tower Automotive, snaked our way through the Sterling Studio lofts, through the BeBloor and Brownstones on Bloor developments, along Rankin Cres. and through Erwin Krickhahn, and then back up to the starting point on Wallace Ave. Some of us finished off with delicious ice cream at Yasi's Place afterwards!

Although there is still much more to see in the Junction Triangle, our 2-hour tour was full of local history (e.g. Kevin Putnam explained how some of our streets were named), some personal anecdotes, comments on past and future developments, discussions about parks and gardens, and much more.

Fortunately, the weather forecast was wrong: The cloudy skies at the beginning of the walk quickly parted, and I ended up coming home with a sunburn rather than soaking wet clothes.
