No one is on the wrong side of the tracks in our vicinity. There are nice, leafy walks to be found on both sides of the railway, thanks to a common ravine that holds Small’s Creek. A local told me that the stream runs all year, never freezing. The waters surface only occasionally and are mainly channeled into pipes that run beneath roadways. The rushing sound is always audible through
manhole maintenance hole covers.
This particular walk runs along the north side of the Via Rail tracks, a bit further south than the bottom of East Lynn Park. The little enclave of homes down there is a quiet retreat. Very pleasant and easy to miss, which pleases residents, I’m sure.
