Eastern Woodlands

Eastern Woodlands
Karen Yukich

The eastern woodlands flank the ravine formed by Spring Creek as it flows south from the Howard and Ridout Ponds near Parkside Drive and Bloor St. The slopes on the east side of the ravine have a more northern character, with trees such as Hemlock and shade plants such as Jack-in-the-Pulpit. This is distinctly different from the more Carolinian savannahs and woodlands found in other areas of the park.

Watch and listen for woodland birds such as Eastern Wood-Pewee, Pine Warbler and Hairy Woodpecker.
