Etienne Brule Park in Toronto

Humber River

Etobicoke, Ontario, Canada

Headed east from Old Mill Subway Station on Old Mill Road, cross the stone bridge and turn left into Etienne Brule Park. Water level varies throughout the year. In the fall, great spot to see salmon going upstream.

Two egrets in one spot. Hardly see two together here in the city. Seagulls flying about, landing on the rocks in the water. Someone walking along the trail in the park stopped to chat and said they saw a salmon trying to get upstream, but I didn't see one. It's almost that time of year when you can spot them in the Humber River. I was in the area because local Indigenous artist Phillip (Phil) Cote provided a guided tour of six of ten Indigenous murals. They are located on the large pillars under the subway track bridge southwest of Etienne Brule Park. From the parking lot, head west over the bridge, and then south along the west bank of the river to see them. They're amazing, and so too are the explanations behind their meaning. Most feature water and fish. For more information, check out CBC article "Old Man Bridge transformed into canvas for Indigenous art":
