Wonscotonach Walk: A Lost Rivers Walk
The Lower Don River is always changing. As the Queen St. bridge translates Heraclitus, “The river I step in is not the river I stand in.”
We will explore the changes, hydrological, biotic, mechanical and artistic, shaping this well-travelled part of downtown’s liminal Core Circle and examine opportunities to expand Wonscotonach Parklands, a name for the Don that settlers assumed from the Mississaugas.
This linear 2.5 km walk includes some uneven ground. John Wilson leads with friends.
Meet at the corner of Mill St. and Bayview Avenue, a short distance east of the Distillery District streetcar loop.
