We’ll meet at Mimico Square, near the GO train station a short distance from the locally famous San Remo bakery! As we walk towards the waterfront, I’ll give you a brief history and the inside scoop on the village of Mimico. Our first stop is Birds and Beans, an eco-friendly café and community fixture! Let me treat you to a juice, tea or coffee and homemade goodie, while we plan our next steps. After our snack break, we meander east along the waterfront, enjoying a diversity of birds and waterfowl - If we’re lucky, we’ll even see an eagle or an owl! I’ll also show you evidence of our local beaver hard at work and maybe we’ll even meet her in person. Get out your camera; you won’t want to miss these beautiful, waterfront nature shots and awesome view of the Toronto skyline in the distance. We continue east through a peaceful, multilingual butterfly garden before ending up at the iconic white bridge at the mouth of the Humber. After a little history (including Indigenous history) of this particular area, I’ll leave you here to continue on along the waterfront towards downtown, or I can give you directions to the nearby transit stop and you can ride the historic 501 street car.
I’m a certified teacher, licensed pilot and mother of monozygotic twins. I’m fluent in English and German, working on my Spanish and French. This tour is offered primarily in English, and runs year round! As a settler Canadian, Truth and Reconciliation are increasingly important to me, and I‘ve been working hard to learn more indigenous history. I look forward to sharing a bit of our culture and history with you, in particular what we can find here in the city‘s west end by the waterfront. I’ve lived in the Mimico area my whole life, and I’m looking forward to sharing this beautiful and historically interesting community with you! As a classroom teacher and workshop facilitator for over 20 years, you can count on me to make this an interactive and engaging experience for adults and children alike.
