This Sunday May 3, you are invited to join me at 4 p.m. at the Ashbridge’s Bay skatepark, Coxwell and Lakeshore. We’ll meet at the bench on the Coxwell side of the skatepark. No need to bring your skateboard, of course you can if you wish.
We’ll take a stroll “up the creek” – the Ashbridge’s Creek which is now buried, but evidence remains above ground.
