HILLY STROLL

WALK 21

bloc Walk 21 Runnymede HILLY STROLL in T

JUST THE RIGHT MIX

MINDSET: When you want an intimate encounter with a neighbourhood that quietly goes along with its perfect life.

6,460 steps (4.2 km, 1 hr 05)

This stroll is part of Bloor West Village (for some fun window shopping) and part Swansea (for a sneak into a lovely residential area). The mix of businesses on Bloor St W between Jane St and Runnymede Rd indicates a dynamic local life, with enough interesting stores, restaurants and patios to satisfy outsiders. Not to be missed, the prettiest Shoppers Drug Mart, built in the historic building which housed the Runnymede Theatre.

 

The hilly roads in Swansea offer a unique panorama. You'll find a few staircases along the way to explore intriguing nooks and crannies.
