Having biked from Howard Junior Public School after experiencing their Species of The Humber Watershed playground labyrinth, I was en route to Butterfly Park just west of the Humber River. The original intention for the day was to […]

Yelp Review: Christie Street Traffic Island Labyrinth

We had heard rumors. Walking outside of Christie station on the TTC, we look down… suddenly we see it… artfully laid out on the ground…  The labyrinth. No, this has absolutely nothing to do with David Bowie.
