Geocache Description:

Part of a series taking you to some of our favourite places to spend time in Toronto.


Bridlewood Library is located on the lower level of Bridlewood Mall, near the north entrance, at 2900 Warden Avenue, Unit 157A.  The library is one of a limited number of branches that offer Museum and Arts Passes (a.k.a. MAP passes) to places that include the Toronto Zoo, Black Creek Pioneer Village, Gardiner Museum, and the Ontario Science Centre.  A valid adult Toronto Public Library card is needed in order to get a pass and each pass will allow free general admission to one of those venues for up to two adults and two children.  Passes are first come first serve and new ones are released Saturday mornings.  There are lineups for passes so arrive early and be prepared to wait.

Bridlewood branch is just a short walk away from a mini cemetery in the north-east parking lot of Bridlewood Mall.  Christie’s Methodist Cemetery is located outside of the Price Chopper grocery store, and offers a tiny spot of green space in the midst of a sprawling concrete lot.  The Bridlewood Mall area used to be farmland, and back in the 1840s, a Methodist church was built on the property.  In the 1920s, the church was absorbed into the United Church of Canada and the building eventually closed down and was relocated elsewhere, but the cemetery remained on site.  (According to an article on spacing.ca, when developers wanted to build the mall in the 1970s, there was talk about moving the gravesites but relatives and descendants rejected the idea.  At the time, Ontario law stated that gravesites could not be disturbed without the consent of the next of kin so developers were forced to include the cemetery in the building plans). 

Geocache is not at the posted location.  Finaly is located in the library, so plan your visit accordingly.  You can check operating hours at http://www.torontopubliclibrary.ca/detail.jsp?Entt=RDMLIB028&R=LIB028

To find the container, solve these:

1) There is a sewer grate located near the road curb at this location (closest mall entrance would be on the west side, near the McDonalds)  There is a year on the sewer grate.  What is the third number of the year?   The answer = A

2) There are two sewer grates located in this spot in the parking lot.  What are the total number of holes for both sewer grates?  Take that number and subtract five from it and the result will = B (two digit number)

3) There are stairs at this location: What is the total number of stairs here?  Take that number and add sixty.  The result = C  (two digit number)



Solve for: R AC.B4  You do not need to solve for R, but it is important.
