It is getting more difficult to find natural spaces to visit in the current health disaster.
I decided to revisit the Eldred King Woodlands and look for the small stream here.
There is also a pond:
I found a Mallard bathing here:

While I was in the park, a York Regional Forest official visited and put up these signs plus yellow police tape at every entrance to the forest:
Off I went to Stouffville:
April is here! Blithest season of all the year;
The little brook laughs as it leaps away;
The lambs are out on the hills at play. – Eben E. Rexford (1848–1916)
Beautiful photos- thank you Miles
Whilst totally onboard with social distancing it seems strange to close places such as these. The natural world is healing and it is easier to remain at a distance in parks, woods, ravines etc – the roads and sidewalks become increasingly crowded.
thanks for the report,it’s getting harder to find places;thanks for sharing….
Really enjoying the photos. Thanks Miles
Yes, don’t risk your own health! When the weather gets warmer, it’s bound to get more crowded, because so many people are going out, not distancing enough–many younger people seem to think they’re immune, they aren’t–I understand people wanting to be out, I take small dog walks (once a day) so I don’t completely lose it, being very careful to keep physical distance, but yes, we all want to survive this, and I am older and want to survive, too! So yes, if things get too busy–we will certainly understand if you can’t do this anymore. Your safety, everyone’s safety, comes first!
Meanwhile, this place, and the pictures, are beautiful. Thanks for sharing!
I didn’t mean older than you, Miles, when I said “older”–hope I’m not putting my foot in my mouth (not advisable) even further–I meant “older” generally, as in demographic. Didn’t want anyone to misunderstand what I meant–let’s just say, I’m old enough (66)!
