The University of Toronto Planning Alumni Committee (PAC) and the Department of Geography & Planning are pleased to invite alumni, faculty, and fellow city builders to the 23rd Annual Friends of Planning Spring Social. We hope you will join us for an evening of mingling and networking, live music, hors d'oeuvres, and a keynote address on a pivotal planning topic.
Join Professor Toni Davis as you explore the shoreline from the Bluffs to the Toronto Islands where you’ll start at Bluffers Park to examine the distinctive Sunnybrook Drift. The next stop will be the Leslie Street spit, a 5 km structure designed originally as an eastern extension of the Toronto harbour, composed of construction debris and dredgeate. The third stop will be at the eastern docks to talk about the Keating Channel and other ill-conceived manipulations of the lower Don. Time permitting the group will then head for the Toronto Islands to consider modifications of the original features and contemporary issues.
