Mimico Creek

Selected for Google Maps and Google Earth

Mimico Creek runs almost in my backyard. The stretch between Lake Ontario and Bloor Street is accessible with several walking trails, but only passable in the winter, when large parts of the creek is frozen so you can walk along the ice.

Most houses which backup on the creek are not even visible in the summer through the foliage, but in winter time, the views are unobstructed.

These concrete slabs were probably dumped into the creek, when someone redid their driveway. In time, these will blend more with the scenery.

I grew up in a house that backed onto the creek not far from here - I was always told that those concrete pieces were from retaining walls destroyed during a major storm (possibly Hurricane Hazel, which came up the creek from the Lake and took out the automotive bridge at the foot of Humbervale - it was rebuilt as pedestrian only). Believe me, they've been there for at least 30 years at this point. :)
