Moore Park Ravine (Toronto)

Moore Park Ravine is undoubtedly one of the jewels of Toronto's natural crown. You need to go during a heat wave to fully appreciate the benefits of a ravine in the middle of the city. You enter the ravine through a steep little path, towards a forest of tall trees with green undergrowth (in the summer). The main path travels under a couple of imposing bridges, and continues towards a large opening we reached after a half-hour walk. Along the way, we could have turned left to reach the Don Valley Evergreen Brick Works. During our visit in the Spring, we enjoyed the large and powerful stream (much less impressive by the end of a dry summer). We explored a pond potentially inhabited by frogs, and surrounding small trails. The Mount Pleasant Cemetery added a visitation centre with parking lot in 2009 along Moore Street. It includes a walking/biking path providing easy access to the beautiful cemetery.
