There are a few streets in the Heatherington neighbourhood I still hadn’t travelled down, so that’s where I biked to on Saturday morning. But first I had to go to the theatre for a meeting, and then to Fabricland on Walkley Road to buy a whole lot of canvas.
The Heatherington neighbourhood has seen troubled times, such as this guns and ammo seizure in August. However I have always felt very safe biking through the neighbourhood.
A lot of the houses are similar to these ones on Heatherington Avenue.
There’s this sprawling electric transformer depot.
And there are these great murals covering all four sides of a small service building in the centre of Fairlea Park.
There have also been successful community based initiatives to deal with problems in the area.
On the way home I discovered an unmarked path leading through Pleasant Park Woods off of Rhodes Crescent.
There are alot of trails throughout these woods I didn’t know existed. Can’t wait to check them out.
