Garrison Creek was a stream about 5 miles long that once ran through the west end of the city down to Lake Ontario. In the 1880s parts of it were buried or diverted into the sewer system and by the 1920s the whole creek was buried. You can see the results of the creek's past existence in various ravines and in places like Christie Pits park. There has been a move afoot for several years to try to uncover part of the creek and in many places along its former path you can find these plaques marking its presence underground. This plaque was found in the Regal Heights neighbourhhood just south of St Clair Ave W. More from that area tomorrow.
