Scarborough Bluffs: upper section near Warden Avenue

Even though I grew up near the Scarborough Bluffs, there are certain sections of it that I am unfamiliar with. In the next few posts, I will explore some of these areas.

Between the bottom of Warden Avenue and east of Birchmount Road, there are several parkettes:

and one large floral garden:

The western boundary of this area is the private Toronto Hunt Club. The club was established by British Army officers in 1843 and many equestrian events were held here. These days, it is a golf club. Here is a photo of the area along the top of the bluffs:

It was a sunny but chilly morning as I walked about:

Here are some views of the lake from various of these parkettes:

and a view of the lovely blue sky:

I did have some bird companions:
