We've taken quite a number of looks in recent weeks — and we will be back again — to check out the progress of work taking place to create a new mouth of the Don River in Toronto's Port Lands, but today, thanks to this image by UrbanToronto Forum contributor TwinHuey, we're heading upstream to one of the Don's tributaries, Taylor Creek, where the City of Toronto is working to improve the quality of the water that flows into the Don in the first place. Stabilizing the banks and bed of the creek to prevent erosion and to improve the creek's biodiversity is one of the keys to improving the quality of the environment in our ravine park system overall. Once work on the water and suurrounding landscape has been completed later this year, a multi-use path will replace the construction road and this stretch of the Taylor Creek valley near Dawes Road will reopen to the public.
