DON RIVER AND VALLEY Discover the Don River Valley, its steep-sided tributary ravines, river, forests and wide vistas. These natural features have captivated and attracted explorers like you since the earliest days of human habitation in this area.
Many of Toronto's native tree species still appear in the nearby well-wooded valleys including oak, pine, beech, basswood, maple and ash.
