A few photos from a leisurely walk I enjoyed at Maplewood Flats with my boyfriend.
While the conservation area is known for its varied wildlife, we only saw 3 birds during our visit. We could hear many more, but they were obviously feeling a little shy. Or perhaps it was the cat we saw (on a leash!) that kept them hidden?
It was a gorgeous day and we’re surprised by how few people we came across. It’s almost like an hidden gem in a city of busy outdoor spaces.
The area was home in the 1940’s to a community of squatters living in dilapidated cabins along the intertidal zone. While the cabins are long gone, an installation by artist Ken Lum depicts scaled replicas of the old cabins.
