2. The Rosedale Ravine (photo circa 1907)
While Torontoist may not have made out in the bleachers as a teen, we did have our fair share of outdoor intimate encounters. Things had to happen outside, though, because finding an empty room is hard when you’re a sexually charged teen. Saturday nights were always challenges to find ideal places to get it on, and we’re happy to report that times have not changed.
Torontoist has become privy to the new make-out spot of youth, not because we were looking, but more because we couldn’t help but overhear. The ravine running through Rosedale and Moore Park has been filled with rowdy teens and their rowdy noises all summer long, and we think they might be onto something. It’s discreet (give or take the amplification of sounds), large enough to cater to more than one couple, and kind of romantic. What’s more romantic than canoodling in the moonlight, among chirping crickets and a somewhat-clean river?
