The Garrison Creek still flows beneath our city. As it rushes under homes, cafes, roads and parks, we find signs of this lost river in tilting houses, dips in streets, buried bridges and a string of green valleys.
Human River celebrates the creek’s path with eclectic events that incorporate: education, art and exploration. Join us as we remember the water’s past as a creek that carved our city, learn about its present in Toronto’s storm sewers, and imagine its potential future.
