Tiny street galleries

This week, a park we’ve never visited…
But first, about last week:

Just three of us. We hoped to see several of Open Field Collective‘s tiny front yard art installations, all in the west end, so far. (Convenient!) We enjoyed the fun of the artful pieces in these little galleries. The morning flew past, with conversation, sunshine and a shared mini-snack, too. We walked through the “field” of Bloordale’s sidewalk gardens again, on our way home, as these steel flowers were brand new to both my companions. A terrific walk! We saved plenty of the little galleries to visit, another time. The contents of these display galleries change every six weeks, so it will be interesting to see what we find on the next look.

Now: Sunday, April 24, 2016:

We’ll head west, further west than usual, to enjoy a small park many haven’t seen. Most have never even heard of Rennie Park, let alone had a look. There are trees, fields, Catfish Pond! It’s so close to High Park that it’s often overlooked. I’ve always been envious of folks in the few houses that back right onto that pond. We’ll walk through (the park – not the pond!), and then head home by any route you choose. Anyone with an afternoon commitment might wish to take transit home, so bring TTC fare.

Other great walks ahead. Read on…

Coming right up:

April showers bring May flowers, right? So let’s enjoy this wildly varied spring weather and all it brings us. Soon: Jane’s Walks! How many wonderful neighbourhood-exploring walks can we fit into the Jane’s Walk weekend? More on that, next week. Then, another trip to the Island. Tony says: the best time of year is almost here, over there. Let’s go.

See you soon!

Are you reading about our club for the first time?
