Port Credit Cultural Walking Tours

An excerpt from the above-noted like reads:

Enjoy a free history lesson through the popular free walking tours of Port Credit, held on the last Saturday of every month from April to October.

Richard Collins will share stories of this historic village from their aboriginal past to today’s thriving vibrant lakeside community.

Bring comfortable shoes and attire and your camera/smartphone to grab some great pictures along the way.

Each tour starts at 10:00 am at Clarke Hall (161 Lakeshore Road West) and is two hours in length. Guests of all ages are welcome and it’s great way to enjoy the outdoors and possibly learn a few new things along the way.

    The Other Side of the Tracks

    For our first tour of 2017, we’ll venture along Mississauga Road, north of the tracks to see some of the historic homes along this scenic road, including Canada’s first $250,000 home . . . in 1931.
