As cars whiz by Lawrence Ave. on the Don Valley Parkway, I doubt that many drivers realize what a lovely natural area; stream, ponds, field and forest lies just below them.
The only drawback here is the constant nearby roar of traffic.
The glassy pear tree leaves and blooms,
they brush the descending blue;
that blue is all in a rush with richness;
the racing lambs too have fair their fling. – Gerard Manley Hopkins (1844–89)
