About Guild Park And Gardens, Toronto
This is at once one of Toronto’s most curious and intriguing attractions. In essence, it is a flower and sculpture garden, but the mystique lies in the garden’s origins. It is a failed artists colony that transformed into a sort of memorial of Toronto’s demolished buildings. For that’s what makes up the sculptures and monuments here - the leftovers of Old Toronto. These have been arranged into arrangements such as the The "Greek" Theatre, the historic Osterhout Cabin, the Engine House No. 2, and Art Deco arrangements from the Toronto Star Building are some examples of the 70 such decorations. The park also has a greenhouse and bike trails. There’s a beach too! Also check out the Historic Guild Inn.

Guild Park And Gardens, Toronto Reviews
Formula Ford in Pickering , On the. This is one of the worst dealerships I have ever being too I was supposed to have service done to my vehicle one day they never even looked at it the second day he never even looked at it again and he just brushed it off this dealership is not a dealership to be trusted or to even rate as good service or quality work. They sent me a survey to see how they could improve their work habits or to make my visit better, if they want to have their service rated they have to do service but they do not care and they do not have good work ethics. Avoid this dealership at all cost and you will have better service elsewhere even if you had to drive to Whitby or Scarborough or your local garage.
Free parking, modern facility, wall to wall windows. We were there for a mid size winter wedding so we had the whole facility to ourselves. Not sure what the parking situation would be like during the busy season but it was nice having the run of the facility to ourselves. Food was good.
I have walked the grounds here many times in the past, largely for photographing the intriguing statues and facades of old Toronto and other institutions, largely banks, salvaged years ago during the 1950s and 1960s periods of wanton destruction of our architectural heritage. The old conference centre and restaurant recently underwent an overhaul so I was interested to take a look from the outside. I understand lunches are open to the public on weekends. The new buildings are an excellent fit with the remaining central portion of the old building. The relics in the park seem to be in the same position but I get the feeling some have been removed. I attended during a snow storm and resulting pictures were worth the slogging through the uncleared areas. I will try the weekend lunch at a later date.
Great location to take a walk and see some historic building parts great place to do some photo shoots if you are a photographer. Really enjoyed the spot. I didn't use any of the interiors of the buildings so I can't say anything about that but the outdoors area is great.
Great place to visit any time of year. In the summer and fall it is especially beautiful. Old ruins from our city are scattered around, manicured gardens and old trees are being taken care of by the staff. We love coming here for the peace and quiet this place has to offer and it's great lake views. If you're a photographer, you'll find lots of opportunities to snap great pictures.
