Queen’s Park Circle Walk: Outside the Circle – Tuesday, August 1, 2023 at 11:00 am

Start: 11:00 am

Leader: Simon Pearson

Meet: Museum Station

Most of us are fairly familiar with what lies within the Queen’s Park Circle, i.e., the Legislature and its grounds. However, just outside the circle there are many other places of interest, often less well known. This walk wends its way right around the outside of the circle without actually touching it. It includes several gardens, lots of sculptures, parts of the U of T, memorials to firemen and police, underground rivers and much more!

Lunch:  The Duke of York pub  (near St. George Station)
