Garrison Creek

Garrison Creek

750 Bloor Street West,, Toronto, Ontario

The Garrison Creek is Toronto's most famous "Lost River". When the city was founded, you could fish salmon and canoe from Lake Ontario to what is now Bathurst Subway Station. It was buried in 1880 and now runs beneath the city in a Victorian brick sewer. Recent efforts, including the David Suzuki Foundation's Homegrown National Park Project, are bringing attention to this important cultural and ecological corridor.

It has been largely covered over and filled in, but geographical traces of the creek can still be found. The natural amphitheatre known as Christie Pits is one such remnant
