This is not your average walking tour!
At first glance, Bloordale may seem like your average west end Toronto neighbourhood, with too many cannabis shops and a few trendy bars sprinkled among the convenience stores. Hidden gems of Bloordale come to the forefront in this tour, as we stop at some of the newer landmarks to pop up on Google Maps.
Perhaps you’ve heard of Bloordale Beach and are wondering where all the lifeguards have gone? Find out, as Shari Kasman will lead you between hotspots in a tour that includes an innovative blend of fact and fiction. This tour is guaranteed to highlight the weird, wonderful, and whimsical. Questions will be wholly encouraged! Keep your eyes peeled in August—if you see pins from Google Maps popping up around the area you’ll know why.
