WALK DETAILS:

Join me on a guided walking tour of the High Park North neighbourhood and learn the stories of early residents of the area, including the first mayor of the Village of West Toronto Junction, a portrait painter, and a naturopathic doctor who believed in the healing properties of an Olympic-sized swimming pool.

 

We will examine how popular urban planning philosophies such as the City Beautiful Movement, Towers in the Park, and facadism have played out in and shaped this neighbourhood.
