walk 2

A number of the buildings located on the Humber College grounds around Sam Smith park were part of the former Lakeshore Psychiatric Hospital, originally known as the Mimico Hospital for the Insane. The hospital was built in 1888.
Check out: Asylum by the Lake. In 1991, Humber College secured a 99 year lease on the buildings and started on a major restoration project

the snow is almost all gone. Looking out the window, I see a little snow and ice in our back yard, but not much. The water is still frozen in the yacht club bay, but the lake proper is clear. There's a bit of ice in low areas where snowmelt has refrozen.
