I was trying out the panorama setting on my camera and took this pic from high up the hill looking down into Bickford Park which is just south of Bloor St and west of Bathurst St. You wouldn't know it to see this view but a long buried creek runs below here. Garrison Creek starts just north of Davenport Rd and runs about 8 km to Lake Ontario through the west end of downtown. The whole creek has been buried since the 1920s and the only sign of it now is the ravines that have been left and which are the location for several parks along the route. There is a move afoot to open the creek up in areas but that seems doubtful.
