The banks of the Silver Creek tell many stories about our city. We will follow the remnants of the river from its mouth at the Speed to its disappearance under the tracks. Learn why the first John Sleeman chose its waters for his beer, the story of the Red and Phoenix Mills, and the mysterious broken dam.
Meet us at the mouth of the Silver Creek (also called Howitt Creek), on the north side of the Speed River between Hanlon Parkway and Edinburgh Road South. Participants can park at the Silvercreek Skatepark and walk west along the Speed to our starting location. We will end our walk at Howitt Park.
