Water in the City Walk
Have you ever wondered how a drop of rain falling on the city finds its way to Lake Ontario?
Join us on the Water in the City Walk and follow a raindrop's journey to reach the Lake. Learn about Riverdale's urban history, lost streams, storm sewer infrastructure, and its impacts on the Don River by using Riversides' self-guided tour booklet.
This two-hour walk serves as a short course on individual source water protection and what homeowners can do right at home to help protect and restore the Don River!
All walks start at Chester Subway Station and conclude at Chester Spring Marsh approx. 2 hours later. The walk covers occasionally difficult/wet terrain so please wear suitable footwear and dress appropriately (e.g. sunscreen, hat, bring water, etc.).
There is no charge for the walk, but donations to RiverSides are kindly appreciated.
(Note: The guide is 3.3 MB and the map is 1.5 MB. Please print the guide in 2-slides per page to view in booklet format.)
