Join the Ashbridge’s Neighbourhood Jane’s Walk on Sunday May 4, 2014

Ashbridge's neighbourhood Jane's Walk

You’re invited to the Jane’s Walk Sunday May 4 – meet at the northwest corner of Lakeshore and Coxwell.

You’re invited to the Jane’s Walk Sunday May 4 – 10:30 a.m. to 12 noon.
Meet at the northwest corner of Lakeshore and Coxwell. (Ashbridge’s Bay skatepark).

We’ll take a stroll up from the bay, roughly up the Ashbridge’s Creek, one of the hidden streams of east Toronto.

What we’ll talk about:
What is Ashbridge’s Bay today? What was it in 1793? Who were the Ashbridges? Why is there a historic house on Queen East with a huge expanse of lawn? Where is the Ashbridge’s Creek today? Guess a few of the names that the Ashbridge’s neighbourhood has been called in the last 220 years.

See the walk page on the Jane’s Walk website.

Also see photos of the Jane’s Walk I led in 2012, in conjunction with the 100th anniversary of Duke of Connaught Public School, Woodfield Road, Toronto.
