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 nowtoronto.com
