My friends and I all attended Parkdale Junior and Senior Public School on Seaforth ave in Toronto, but it was wonderful being so close to the shore of Lake Ontario and the Toronto Islands, a gorgeous set of islands just south of the neighborhood within the lake.
- My parents used to take myself and others to the Toronto Islands while the two of us were in my childhood on the small ferry that transfers people to the area.
If you’re simply wishing to get access to the Billy Bishop Toronto City Airport, there’s now a walking tunnel under the Western Channel that takes you directly into the island-based airport. My family constantly uses the Bill Bishop airport for it’s ease and convenience, on top of that, living in Parkdale meant that the two of us were just a single block away from the sizable High Park. High Park consists of over 400 acres of trees, roads, trails, sod, creeks, and a small pond. Although there are people walking and driving through the park at nearly all hours of the day, this is where I used to smoke weed with my friends if the two of us were hiding along the Garsteakhouse Expressway. It was a lot of fun getting high in High Park knowing the apparent pun, however it easily gave myself and others a lot of relaxing memories from my younger years. I still live in Toronto however I’m now on the opposite side of the neighborhood in Scarborough. Despite this, there are many outdoor parks in the area for stealth weed smoking and vaping if you’re not apparent about what you’re doing. The RCMP has better things I like to do than stop someone smoking a cannabis vape pen in a neighborhood park, however that doesn’t make it legal either.
