Here’s to the very first Ravine Days!
Oct 11, 2017
The trails re-opened, the gargoyles were unveiled, and bikers and hikers returned to the Lower Don marking the first Ravine Days! Even with record high temperatures, people came out to enjoy the trails and participate in the ravine day programming.
Along the trail, communities participated in the various activations lead by the City of Toronto, Charlies Free Wheels and Evergreen including group rides, guided walks, insect hotel building, leaf identifying activities and the unveiling of the art installation by Duane Linklater.
The morning began when a group of 45 riders including Mayor John Tory, councillors, donors and partners rode to Pottery Road Bridge to officially re-open the trail and launch the Don River Valley Art program.
Later in the afternoon at the gargoyle installation, artist Duane Linklater and his family met with trail users to celebrate the launch of the art program.
Thank you to all of our dedicated volunteers who helped make this event possible.
Looking forward to hitting the trails!
