Guildwood Village Park - Scotia Bank - 1902-1969 Arch. Darling & Pearson

The Guild is a unique facility with several historic buildings inside a public park. Guildwood Park forms a naturalized frame around the formal Guild Inn Gardens. Surrounding these buildings are more than 70 architectural fragments and sculptures within the formal gardens. This place is naturally magnet for wedding photographers.

This photo shows parts of old Bank of Nova Scotia (1903-1969) which was on Toronto's King Street. It is not exactly as it was originaly on the bank, but it is reassembled in different configuration.

Fragments from demolished buildings in and around Toronto were rescued by Rosa and Spencer Clark, and re-erected to create a sculpture garden. Passing into the public domain in 1978, the grounds became a public park and the art and sculpture on display in the gardens became a unique attraction atop the Scarborough Bluffs.
