Lieutenant Governor John Graves Simcoe founded modern urban Toronto (i.e. Town of York), when he established Fort York in 1793. At that time, Garrison Creek flowed in a large deep ravine with several tributaries, from north of St. Clair Avenue to Lake Ontario. The creek had sparkling clear water and was famous for its salmon fishing. The British built Fort York at the mouth of the creek to guard against possible American attempts to invade Canada.
Walk with Councillor Mike Layton as we join Garrison Creek from a starting point of Trinity Bellwoods at the northwest corner (Dundas/Shaw). The route leads you along the now-buried Garrison Creek valley from the park down to Lake Ontario.
