If you hurry, you will see the most amazing art structures on the Beach. There are 5 "warming stations" between the bottom of Wineva and the Balmy Beach club.
Here's a link to the Toronto Star article, with some amazing pictures.
They will be on the beach until March 22, 2015, so hurry!
I've seen them twice. My walking group started at the Riverdale Bridge and walked down through Corktown Commons.
This is a frequent stop on our walks, as it only takes about 20 minutes to get there.
It is the venue for some events for the Panam games, including a new YMCA and housing for George Brown students.
We had coffee at Plan 29, which used to be Mountain View coffee, on Logan near Lakeshore.
From there it was about a 50 minute walk along the Martin Goodman trail, paralleling Lakeshore, to the first warming station.
On my second visit, there was more climbing involved, as each structure is build around a lifeguard station. My favourite was the one with a fire pit, still burning on a sleety Saturday morning.
The walk back to the bridge takes about 75 minutes, if you go cross country, through Orchard Park and Greenwood Park.
