The run will take you to the west end of the city towards Fort York, a National Historic site, where you’ll get to see the grounds of the old military base built to defend the settlement back in the late 18th century. You’ll also pass some of the up and coming neighborhoods where you’ll see the modern glass architecture that characterizes Toronto. At the waterfront, the route will take you along the Martin Goodman trail, a popular route for cyclists to commute in and out of the city from the neighbouring suburbs.
The trail branches off towards Ontario Place and you can expect to see the Budweiser stage and Echo beach, both of which are popular outdoor concert venues during the summer. You’ll also see the BMO Field, Toronto Football club’s arena.
Ontario Place is a multi use park consisting of a cinema, park and also marina. From here, views of the city we’ve left behind are stunning and you’ll also have great views of the city of Mississauga in the distance. The trails are away from the hustle and bustle of the city and will make you forget you are so close to a busy metropolitan.
