That's great! More city dwellers need to visit the Spit. Would like to see a BIXI bike rental station and maybe an outdoor summer cafe at the entrance.

Any birds about?
Except for the water fowl (swans, ducks), the warblers and jays are practically non-existent, at least to my eyes.
It is supposed to be a good time of year to spot owls there.
The City & TRCA have started building the new section of the Martin Goodman Trail from the road leading to the Outer Harbour Marina to the main entrance of Tommy Thompson park @ Leslie Street. It will be good to be able to avoid the 'dog-leg' section of Unwin that belongs to Ports Toronto. It's not a long stretch but the land looks quite boggy so I bet it will not get finished until very late fall or next spring.
