Today my daughter, Andrea and I drove to Kleinburg to visit the McMichael Canadian Collection of Art and the spectacular grounds that the gallery is built on. We lucked out with the weather and were able to walk around the property before we entered the gallery. Located on 100 acres of forested land along the Humber River, the McMichael is a major public gallery uniquely devoted to collecting the art of Canada.
I was just commenting to a friend the other day that it was a shame how early the pools and splash pads close here in the city. The day after Labour Day all the outdoor pools close for the season. I’m sure one of the reasons has to do with the fact that most of their staff consist of students who have to go back to school.
Well colour me surprised today when I found out that the splash pad at Marie Curtis Park still has its water feature working. Just hit the button and all the fountains and water sprayers start to flow. What a great find, especially on a warm day like today.
Today was a very productive day for my blog. I took a trip over to Marie Curtis Park and found subjects for three posts today. I’m always on the hunt for public art and murals. I hit the jackpot today.
