[PHOTO] Twelve photos of Ontario Place and scenes from the William C. Davis trail (#ontarioplace)

leave a comment »

This post, last of my four from Ontario Place, shows some of the things I saw heading east back to the mainland of Toronto, past the architecture of Ontario Place and along the William C. Davis Trail i Trillium Park. The views this trail offers, of the Toronto skyline and of the Toronto Islands, are unparalleled.

[PHOTO] Ten photos of the Toronto skyline from the Chester Hill Lookout

Yesterday afternoon, I ventured out to Chester Hill Lookout. I first learned of this observation point, located in the east-end of Playter Estates north of the Danforth and west of Broadview overlooking the Don Valley, through an Instagram post. The views offered by this location of downtown Toronto to the south and west are amazing. I must go again on a clear day or night.

[URBAN NOTE] Four Toronto links: 1 Bloor West, Google at Quayside, Parkdale culture, York art show

  • Alex Bozikovic looks at the plans for 1 Bloor Street West, The One. This tower may well become a national icon.
  • Will a Google company play a leading role in the construction of the east waterfront neighbourhood of Quayside? The Toronto Star reports.
  • The idea of the Parkdale library becoming the centre of a bigger cultural hub is provocative. NOW Toronto reports.
  • This art show at York featuring works by artists from the old internal suburbs of Toronto sounds great. The Globe and Mail reports.

Not too long ago, there would not have been nearly so many towers along this stretch of Lake Shore Boulevard above Humber Bay.

[URBAN NOTE] Not a public laneway, east of Queen’s Park

Not a public laneway #toronto #skyline #condos #tower #laneway #alley #downtown

Signs notwithstanding, this laneway separating all these condo towers does at least look like a real street.

The rear staircase of the Art Gallery of Ontario, extending five stories above Grange Park and overlooking the skyline of downtown Toronto, offers dramatic vistas.
