The Beltline is located in the heart of the city, within the Moore Park Ravine. The trail is 9 kilometres long, and its walkways are fully surrounded by a forest and grass, creating the illusion that you are outside of Toronto. Despite the fact that many people still refer to the area as Beltline Park, the park was renamed “Kay Gardner Beltline” in 2000, after a woman called Kay Gardner, for her dedication to community development. If you’re tired of the hustle and bustle of city life and want to escape to nature without having to go far, the Beltline is the place to go.

Things To Do

If you are looking for a lengthy bike route where no cars will bother you, there is no better spot than Beltline Trail. The Beltline begins at Moore Avenue and extends southwest to Governors Rd, linking to Don valley Brickworks Park and goes down to join Bayview Avenue, Park Dr. Reservation Trail, and Milkman’s Ln on the south side. This park connects several neighbourhoods and provides a fantastic area for a lengthy walk, jog, or even a pleasant dog walking day for your adventurous pet. There are also benches throughout the path that are ideal for alone time or resting after your hikes.
Many photographers have also made the Beltline Park their favourite destination because it provides a fantastic location for nature shots, particularly under the railway bridge, where some leaves and tree branches have grown and entangled, giving you the impression that you are in a post-apocalyptic time. And also, don’t forget to look for graffiti on your hikes.
Other activities available in the park include bird and flower watching, with blooms such as Black-eyed Susans to be found.
When travelling along the Beltline, you can find creeks and the Evergreen Brick Works. This pond is surrounded by lily pads and toads, providing a fantastic photo opportunity and a tranquil scene that will make any nature enthusiast’s heart sing.
The Beltline Trail is a beautiful natural area in Toronto that is worth a visit. There are numerous parks in Toronto that provide wonderful vistas and a view from the hustle and bustle of the city, but none are as authentic as the Beltline. If you enjoy long paths for walking, hiking, or simply being out in nature, check out this never-ending track and explore Toronto neighbourhoods with your family.
