Tommy Thompson Park - Wow!

I have lived in and around Toronto since birth, and I have never been to this "urban wilderness" down the bottom Leslie Street. It is just beyond words. Quite a visual contrast, with man made rubble, clean fill, which built it since the late 1950s, blended with natural landscape which has grown over time. This place is quite the home to many many birds, insects, plants and wildlife. At the same time as enjoying this lush wilderness, one can spot the TO skyline pretty much at any point. The freakiest sight we were treated to was the thousands of perching and nesting Cormorants as we reached the end of one path at the shores of an inlet. Unfreakingbelievable. No wonder teams of them were flying overhead, heading in that same direction all day.

Just a few interesting sights from the park.
