A Walking Tour of Grey Abbey Park

Join us Sunday February 12th at 2:00pm

We will be meeting at Grey Abbey Park: 190 Greyabbey Trail in Scarborough. Just east of Morningside Avenue, on Greyabbey Trail. Parking on street. A 3 minute walk from bus stop on Morningside. TTC bus #116a or #116c from Kennedy Station. Travel time 15 minutes from subway.

This is our first walk in a series of walking tours that will take place along the parks and shorelines of the Scarborough Bluffs. Walking Tours are a great way to enjoy the outdoors, walk with others and learn more about the natural and cultural history of a place! 

Grey Abbey Park in east Scarborough is an exceptional little park situated high upon the bluffs, east of Morningside Avenue and Guildwood Pkway, with an entrance on Greyabbey Trail. 

This park is known for offering some of the most remarkable sightlines and this time of year is especially good since the leaves are down and all views are completely unobstructed. 
In addition to the obvious attraction of the vistas, Grey Abbey has some other notable features and unique terrain that truly make this a park with some punch! 

Where else can you walk along open and manicured grounds, wind your way through a rare and symbolic birch forest, look down upon 2 km of sand beach that looks like a travel destination and then find yourself beside a rugged ravine over 300 m long and almost 200 m wide and deep.  
Come to Grey Abbey Park - enjoy the walk, you won’t be disappointed!!

Accessible by TTC: Take the 116 Morningside Bus to the Guildwood and Morningside Stop. Walk east along Grey Abbey Trail, the park is on the south.
