Gates Gully

Sights & Sites: Abbey

Abbey is an Earth Ranger, member of the Toronto Field Naturalists and her school's Eco Club, and has been participating in stewardship events across the city since she was 4. Oh, and she's my daughter.

I asked her the question: What is the most interesting, unusual or beautiful sight to see in one of our ravines or forests?"

"The most interesting thing is probably the rock beach at Gates Gully. I like it because there are so many different types of stones, like marble, quartz, and old bricks. It's pretty neat. Also, there are little critters that live in the rocks like muskrats and birds. On one rock in the water there are always seagulls having a party! There's also a shipwreck nearby, the Alexandria. It was a cargo ship and they were carrying a whole bunch of kitchen stuff and things like that. Today in Gates Gully you can still see part of the ship in the water."
