Next to the forest is green space connecting a village.
My beloved neighbourhood park is so large that I need to publish a second entry to show additional paths you can take.
The plazaParkwoods Village is actually a shopping plaza that provides many of the services needed to satisfy a large community. A grocery store, drug store, laundromat, cafe, and more. Surrounding the plaza is a vast park and forest. The trails connect many streets to schools, a library, and playgrounds.
Perhaps while waiting for your laundry to finish or a prescription to be filled, you can take a relaxing 2 km hike.
For this route, start at Pizza Pizza (1277 York Mills Rd Unit #9) in Parkwoods Village. Cross Brookbanks Drive, and you'll be on the trail.
The paved path follows a ditch and has several bridges and connections to streets in the neighbourhood.
Follow the trail until it ends at the high school, Victoria Park Collegiate Institute.
At this point, you'll be near Cassandra Blvd, and you might want to stop and enjoy the park. There's a children's playground, indoor tennis courts, a running track, and a school garden.
When my son was young, we would play T-Ball in this park.
Exit the park through the school parking lot and continue through the trail between two houses.
This leads you to a fantastic green space with a paved path running through it. The backyards of the houses on either side of the trail have gates in their fences to allow them easy access to this park.
The trail curves to the right and takes you to Wallingford Road.
Cross the road, and you are in the park behind Crestwood Preparatory school.
Cross Brookbanks Drive, and you'll be at the Don Mills Library and back at Parkwoods Village.

In the middle of March, I noticed many fat Robins.
