The Toronto Purchase: Treaty Walk at Neilson Park

John Wilson of the Lost Rivers initiative will introduce “The Toronto Purchase” Treaty Walk at Neilson Park exploring part of the Etobicoke Creek trail.

Etobicoke Creek forms part of the boundary between Toronto and Mississauga. More than two centuries ago, a treaty, called the Toronto Purchase (Treaty 13), was concluded between the Mississaugas of the Credit First Nation and the Crown, opening Toronto to British colonial settlers. Participants will explore the landscape and waterways of Neilson Park, walking through paved paths and forest trails suitable for all ages and abilities. Outdoor clothing and footwear are recommended.
