Black Creek soli­tude for Jane-Finch kids


Re Hid­den Gem: Toronto’s Black Creek by Kathy Toth (NOW Online, Au­gust 16).

I grew up in the Jane and Finch area. My friends who worked at the Jane Street McDon­ald’s used to walk along Black Creek more than 30 years ago and found those hid­den gems in the green­ery as a chance to com­mune with na­ture in a very un­nat­u­ral world of con­crete and steel.

We al­ways felt like we were break­ing some kind of law trav­el­ling those wa­ter­ways. But they also mel­lowed us af­ter a long day of work as we made our way to other forms of re­lax­ation, like movies and shop­ping or eat­ing. They have a charm of their own and now the mu­rals along the route add a touch of beauty. Thanks for shar­ing these hid­den nat­u­ral breaks for ev­ery­one to en­joy. Kim Lewis From now­
