The Leslie Street Spit has to be one of the best ideas Toronto ever had. Built entirely out of clean fill from construction debris, it has been allowed to green itself naturally.
Work on the Spit continues, as more fill is added and new trails and ponds are shaped. Danica is helping.
The Spit is open to hikers and cyclists on weekends, when dump trucks and heavy equipment are safely at rest. Today was an absolutely perfect summer day and yet it wasn’t too crowded.
