The Meadoway is 16 km long and is TTC accessible. Groups are welcome to arrive by foot, by TTC, or by school bus. Field trip location details can be determined based on school proximity to various sites within The Meadoway. A map of the entire Meadoway space can be found here.
PLEASE NOTE: Given the nature of The Meadoway space, there is no running water on site and washrooms are not always available. If your school is within walking distance, this may not be an issue. If your school is not close enough to easily walk, please call (647) 505-9960 to discuss the best options.
