This used to be Psychiatrical facility with a park and beautiful buildings from the 1920’s - approx.
It was almost destroyed, but fortunately the neighbourhood protested (I was at several meetings in the early 90's) and the park area and most of the buildings were saved.
I am not completely happy how the buildings were renovated and the additional modern building that were erected, but still better then alternative! It is now part of Humber College.
Here, until about 15 years ago, you could meet here ”Gordon Lightfoot” (Canadian singer) or ”Marilyn Monroe” wondering around, as I did.
When they closed the outpatient psychiatrical Hospital, the former residents had nowhere else to go!
This is the third version of this scenery, I am uploading.
Last year (2010) fall image was featured in October 2011 on a cover of small Toronto magazine.
