Last Sunday we celebrated Canada's 150th birthday with a skate along Toronto's Lake Ontario waterfront. Our skate started off at what will be our new store location in the Canary District, and continued west along the Martin Goodman Trail. Lots of people were out and about, the city was alive with good vibes. The Harbourfront section of the Martin Goodman Trail got a huge face lift recently, so it was smooth skating along the new pavement.
When we got to Ontario place we discovered the new Trillium Park and the William G. Davis Trail, which was absolutely beautiful. Perfect paths take you along a beautiful stretch of waterfront, with lots of areas to stop and chill out for a bit. We followed the path into Ontario Place where we ended up at this point which had a picture perfect sunset over looking the west part of the city. The point had a large oval shaped area to skate with smooth pavement. A great looking spot for slalom skaters or beginners to practice.
After skating that spot for a bit we decided it was time to head back, so we headed to Exhibition Place where we found ourselves skating along the soon to be Indy 500 track. It was amazing to skate in such a large open area in the city with absolutely no one around. A fantastic end to a great skate. Please join us this Sunday, and every Sunday after for a fun skate with great people through this wonderful city we call home.
We meet every Sunday at 6:30pm, at our new location in the Canary District. The address is 446 Front Street East, the corner of Front Street East and Rolling Mills Road. You can find us on Facebook @shoptask for latest happens at the shop.
