From TeachBeach to Leslie Spit Tommy Thompson park

Here are some pictures I captured while I cycled around the different shorelines of Toronto this morning on my bike, from the TeachBeach at OP, to Leslie spit, Tommy Thompson Park

Tommy Thompson Park is a conservation area that keeps growing with more construction debris filling the land. When I first started coming here, there were not many people, now many people enjoy this area, and wildlife too. There are over 300 birds! The park is CLOSED to the public on weekdays until 4:00 p.m. More information on the website:

Started at TeachBeach. Pebble beaches like this are greatly underrated. 

I have been coming to Tommy Thompson park every year for over 10 years now and it is great to see how this nature conservation area has progressed. It seems there are often new small lakes created. Can you see the bunnies? 

This bridge was flooded a few years ago. I think the same year Toronto Island residents had trouble with water. I can recall walking on a deck on the island that year, built on another deck to be above the rising water level.
