Everyone in Toronto lives close to a ravine park. These often-hidden natural gems contain an astonishing diversity of birds, flowers, trees, fish, and wildlife. At the Leslie Spit, in the citys east end, for instance, more than 300 species of birds have been identified. The wetlands at Rouge Park are home to muskrats and blue herons, and numerous types of reptiles and amphibians. The increasingly scarce butternut tree can be found in Warden Woods. Torontos ravines also contain many landmarks of local history, such as the reclaimed Brick Works factory.

Ravines are also great spots for every kind of outdoor activity. Recreation trails are favourites for joggers, hikers, and bikers; rivers and waterways are used for canoeing, kayaking, and kite surfing. Jason Ramsay-Brown offers Torontonians detailed information in one compact spot about many of the opportunities for recreation in Torontos ravine parks.

This revised edition contains up-to-date information and new photographs on what visitors will find in the ravines.

JASON RAMSAY-BROWN has spent more than fifteen years exploring and photographing the more than 100 ravines, parks and urban forests within Torontos boundaries. He is a volunteer with the Tordmodern Mills Wildflower Preserve Stewardship Team and a caretaker of a Monarch butterfly waystation. He lives in Toronto.
