Event description

Description

Join Park People and First Story for a walk on the Green Line that explores the area's Indigenous history and stories, its potential as a new linear park and trail, and the importance of natural corridors for pollinators. The walk will be led by staff from First Story and Park People.

Since 1995, First Story has been engaged in researching and preserving the Indigenous history of Toronto with the goal of building awareness of and pride in the long Indigenous presence and contributions to the city.

The Green Line is a planned linear park and trail through an urban hydro corridor between Earlscourt Park and the Annex. It will connect neighbourhoods low in green space together and create a new community amenity for active transportation, recreation, and natural respite.

The walk will be roughly 1.5 hours long. It will be mostly on paved pathways and through grass, but alternative accessible routes in these spots are easily available. We will be crossing several intersections, but will do so safely together. Children and dogs (on a leash) are welcome on the walk.
