Since I had come all the way out there to dispose of some electronic waste, burnt-out lightbulbs, and dead batteries at the City of Toronto's drop-off point, I wondered how close I was to a microconfluence. It turns out I was really close. I couldn't get on the microconfluence itself, located in the gated-off non-descript building, since it was on the lot of Pinewood Studios.
While in East York to drop off some sweaters to get repaired, I took the opportunity to walk around the neighbourhood and play some location-based games, including visiting a microconfluence. Rather than take a photograph of the house this one was near, and because it seemed at the time to me to be located in the middle of the street, I took a photo of the maintenance hole cover. Coincidentally (or not coincidentally?!), it was right near a Little Free Library as well.
I was in The Danforth to pick up something I had bought from eBay, and had nothing planned in the evening, so I stuck around. I played Ingress, mostly to smash some Machina portals, and decided to play as many location-based games as possible, scouting a microconfluence being one of them. The microconfluence locator took me through an alleyway over to Jones Ave., and right at the intersection of that street and Danforth Ave. is Circus Books, which is right on a microconfluence!
The Kennedy Donovan Center’s parking lot, in a tony area of New Bedford, MA, is the site of a microconfluence.
The Mike’s No Frills on Dundas St. W. and Lansdowne Ave. is the site of a microconfluence.
Behind me, while looking at this tree in High Park North, is a microconfluence.
This plant near Financial Dr. and Syntex Crt. is right on a microconfluence.
Parkdale Pet Foods in, you guessed it, Parkdale, is the site of a microconfluence.
A house with a racing car in the driveway on 19th St. and Dogwood Dr. sits on a microconfluence in Courtenay, B.C.
275 metres in this direction, on the old Farquharson farm, now jointly owned by Ducks Unlimited and the Pacific Estuary Conservation Program, is a microconfluence.
I got closer to the microconflence on the site of the future Mouth of the Creek Park today because the fence preventing me from entering a few years ago was held ajar (and has been for some time). This was my view from that spot.
Emily Paskevics wrote a good overview and history of the proposed Mouth of the Creek Park.
