Glen Steward Ravine / Ivan Forrest Gardens

Glen Steward Ravine/Ivan Forrest Gardens is a Beaches nature treasure. Confusingly this park/trail is named Ivan Forrest Gardens on the south side and Glen Steward Ravine in the northern section. The two parks are really one skinny park/nature trail stretching from Queen St to Kingston Rd. (See map below)

It’s a perfect walk for toddlers and pre-schoolers complete with trees, streams squirrels and birds. As you can see from the photos it’s a beautiful nature trail – especially the northern part. In the summer you wouldn’t even know you were smack dab in the middle of a residential neighborhood.

From the northern end you’ll be walking down a large wooden stairway to get down to he ravine trail. From Queen you walk through a long skinny park till you get to he nature trail. It’s popular with dog walkers and joggers.

I highly recommend this trail for the little ones.
