An Historic Site
Milne Hollow is the northern gateway to the Charles Sauriol Conservation Reserve in floodplains of the East Don Watershed, and is located at the south-east corner of Lawrence Avenue and the Don Valley Parkway. Milne Hollow is a Toronto Bird Flyways site, has a Community Stewardship Program Team, and is the northern access point for a major East Don Trail improvement and connection project. The park is also home to Milne House, a heritage home undergoing stabilization work, which has significant cultural value in the East Don Watershed.
A park driveway allows vehicular, cycling and pedestrian access from Lawrence Avenue. With the completion of major East Don Trail construction, which is scheduled for Spring 2011, there will also be cycling and pedestrian access from two routes on the East Don Trail.
