Colonel Samuel Smith Park

 Park view of Toronto

Colonel Samuel Smith Park is located in the west end of Toronto known as Etobicoke. The park is largely built on landfill, as I explained in last Wednesday's post HERE.

Although this wooded park is in the city, it doesn't feel like it. Wildflowers and wildlife thrive there.  This time of year goldenrod and fall asters are blooming, and a few birds are making brief stopovers as they migrate south.

The park includes a curved peninsula that creates a cove that houses a popular marina.

And the park also boasts a pond teeming with wildlife.

During the summer months, Colonel Sam  is a great place for kids to explore and...

for adults to take in sunshine while viewing Lake Ontario.
