The city of Toronto is home to creeks, rivers and parks. I’ve just started exploring the city over the past few months and I’ve been more than amazed. Little did I know that Canada’s largest city could also be home to parks, trails, rivers and creeks. It’s like being a hundred miles away from home right in your own backyard.
The Guild Inn and surrounding Guild Park is located in the Guildwood neighbourhood of Scarborough just atop the Scarborough Bluffs in south eastern Toronto.
We visited this former artist colony this past weekend. The Park is famous for its eclectic sculpture garden consisting of the ruins of various demolished downtown Toronto buildings including banks and insurance companies.
Yesterday afternoon Minaz and I walked the Doris McCarthy Trail in the southeast part of Scarborough. It’s not a long trail but it’s a fun walk along the Bellamy Ravine as it empties into Lake Ontario at the foot of the Scarborough Bluffs.
Yes. Scarborough is most likely the most scenic part of the city of Toronto.
Here are some photos we took. I hope you enjoy.
Scarborough’s favourite adopted sons are back at it again with “Did I Say That Out Loud?” The band that first gained prominence with “If I had a $1,000,000” recently released their newest single which was subsequently backed with a video.
At posting, this video currently has 1,010,579 views. Hope you enjoy.
If you’ve been following this blog for any length of time or even if you scroll through the posts over the years, you will find that I have written about so many things. And most of the time, nothing in particular.
I’ve blogged about real estate, banking, social media, books and much more. I’ve even used this space to re-blog other blogs in the WordPress community. I also re-post articles that I’ve written in other spaces such as Catalyst (where I work) and itbusiness.
Recently, I’ve been itching to write about so much more: theatre I watch, places I visit, politics, music, and even podcasts I listen to. So I figured I’d rename the blog. The url is not changing – karimkanji.com (or karimkanji.wordpress.com). But I thought the title should.
So allow me to introduce you to “observations from just inside scarborough”. I live in Scarborough. Or, I should say, just inside Scarborough. Fred Patterson – co-host of The Humble and Fred Show – once asked me where I live. I replied, “Just inside Scarborough.” Why? You’d have to live just inside Scarborough to understand.
Well, that’s enough rambling.
Hope you enjoy the show!
