Hey guys,

I don't walk around downtown Toronto much so I was wondering, where are some nice areas to take photos. I'm looking for the following:

- walls riddled with colourful (not obscene/vulgar) graffiti
- bridges overlooking part of TO's skyline or highways (for slow shutter effects)
- skateboard park (I know a few in Scarborough/Markham/Durham areas, just not downtown)

Thanks!!

Hi,
Graffiti are all over the city but Graffiti alley south of Queen and Spadina is a one place you can find lot of them together.
Skateboard Park, one is located close to Ashbridges bay on the north side. Another one is located in Dundas and Bathrust area.
Bridges I dont know much but one I can think off right now is bloor via duct between castle frank and Broadview subway.

Good luck

good bridges on the lakeshore past the exhibition grounds and also at bathurst/front is a nice one over the GO/CN train tracks looking right into the heart of downtown

for vantage points over the city keep an eye out also for concrete multistorey parking lots
A pedestrian bridge also between City Hall and the hotel south of it - many bridges cross the Don River.

Brick works on Bayview and the Cyclepath under the DVP are nice spots
