Len Ford Park

Etobicoke, Ontario

The subzero Canadian air along Lake Ontario doesn’t call to mind a quick dip or a leisurely beach stroll, but this now-frozen path of shoreline along Len Ford Park in Etobicoke, just 20 minutes from downtown Toronto, is a popular summer destination for locals who like to stroll the shady paths or feed the ducks along the shoreline. Snap a photo of the CN Tower in the distance and you’ll wonder how you can be so close to downtown, yet feel so far away.
