Old Mill

The area now known as Old Mill has been used for generations by Canada’s First Nations people for fishing and hunting and as an important trade route. Today it offers opportunities to learn about Toronto’s Indigenous history. Visitors will also find many Tudor-style homes and a short walk away is Bloor West Village where there are numerous spots to eat and drink.

Don't miss:

  • Taking the Discovery Walk from Old Mill station, which passes historic sites and at parts follows the Toronto Carrying Place Trail—a trade route that was used by First Nations people
  • Picnicking in the beautiful Etienne Brule Park 
  • Visiting in fall to see the annual salmon run as they swim up the Humber River. The spot is also a popular fishing locale 
  • A classic English afternoon tea at the historic and photo-worthy Old Mill Toronto 
  • Booking a 1½-hour guided voyageur canoe tour of the Humber River through Toronto Adventures
