Leaders: John Wilson and Joanne Doucette (author of Pigs, Flowers and Bricks: A History of Leslieville to 1920) invite you to share neighbourhood scenes and stories. Meet at Queen St E and Pape Ave. From Leslieville to Playter Estates, we'll tour the first major lost creek east of the Don. Long buried, this stream with several names once scored the landscape, creating the contours of Withrow Park. And it inflected our narratives of the East End from brick works and needle trades to coffee shops and dog parks. End at Carrot Common near Chester subway station. Joint walk with the Toronto Green Community.
