An autumn "Indian summer" morning along Toronto's Kay Gardner Beltline Park.
The 4.5-kilometre long linear park has its origins in 1892, when the Toronto Belt Line Railway Company built a steam rail line across the length of North Toronto to serve commuters in the newly developing suburbs. The land fell into disuse after the line was decommisioned in the 1960's and Toronto City Councillor Kay Gardner led the effort to have the city acquire it for conversion into an urban park. The trail is now a popular spot for local runners, cyclists and dog walkers.
