Join us on a tour through Riverdale whose history includes indigenous settlement, brickmakers, jailbreakers, medical facilities, a park and a Russian royal. Discover how this east end area has evolved over two centuries and continues to reflect the changing demographics of the city.

This walk is free and registration is not required – just show up.

The walk takes place rain or shine and is approximately 90 minutes to 2 hours long.
