Parks and Gardens in Toronto Central

Don Narrows, Mouth and Keating Channel

This is a degraded section of the Don where the river has been straightened into a channel between the highway and railway tracks and empties into the Keating Channel. The area is the subject of the Don Mouth Naturalization and Portlands Flood Protection Project Environmental Assessment and we look forward to having a beautiful wetland someday. Even though it is so degraded we still enjoy some wildlife along the narrows.

Photos taken in 2005 and 2006.
