Come join me for an urban hike starting from Dawson Park to the City Market downtown located north of Jasper Avenue along 104th Street then we will return back to Dawson Park as a group.

The Plan:
- 10am - meet at Dawson Park
- hike to the market will take about 40 minutes (2.5km) uphill (we will take the 200 stairs up from Riverdale)
- spend about 1-1.25 hours looking at the vendors
- 12pm - meet up at Credo cafe (in case we get split up)
- 12:15pm - walk back as a group to Dawson Park (about 40-45 mins - we might take a slightly different route back)

To recognize me at the meeting place, I will be driving a silver Toyota Rav4 and wearing a royal blue EOC baseball cap, or check out my profile on the volunteers page.

From the City Market's website: "What will you find at the City Market Downtown? Farm-fresh produce, locally raised meats, ready to eat meals. Bread, fruit wines, sweet treats . Handcrafted jewellery, local art, one-of-a-kind clothing. Home decor, cut flowers and bedding plants in season. All this and more make up the City Market shopping experience."
