Hear from the team below…
Bob Magee, Morning Host:
“I enjoy cycling the trails from Edwards Gardens right down along the Don River. As well, I enjoy taking the ferry across to the Toronto Islands.”
Cathy Sobocan, Morning News Journalist
“My favourite spring spot in Toronto is the Boardwalk in Toronto’s Beach neighbourhood. It’s a great walk past Woodbine, Kew, and Balmy beaches, plus the Ashbridges Bay Park peninsula along Lake Ontario. I love looking at the sand, the water, and the sailboats, and petting all of the dogs I meet along the way. It feels like I’m away on vacation but really I’m in Toronto. ”
Julian Taylor, Afternoon Drive Host
“To be honest my favourite spot in the city all year round happens to be the smallest room in my house. Here’s a picture for you. It’s the only place that I can feel safe and be by myself for a bit. All kidding aside my favourite place is Taylor Creek Park. Not because it has my namesake but because it’s a beautiful place to go for a long hike in the wilderness. I really love forest therapy ”
David Moses, Afternoon News Journalist & Host of Moment of Truth
“My favourite spot is the Garlock Gardens in Oakville. It features many beautiful views as it is right on Lake Ontario and displays many beautiful gardens. I especially enjoy seeing all of the geese and birds.”
Christa Couture, Weekend Mornings Host
“My favourite spring spot in Toronto is High Park. I know I’m just one of the thousands who flock to see the cherry blossoms, but I can’t help it — those trees full of blooms are the one thing that tell me winter is for sure behind us! Really anywhere I can look up at a canopy of new leaves or blossoms is the best spring spot for me.”
Amanda Pope, Casual News Journalist
“After a long winter, my favourite Spring spot in Toronto is High Park because of the beautiful cherry blossoms. The area around Grenadier Pond gets more colourful each day as Spring progresses.”
