Guildwood Park

High atop Scarborough Bluffs, Guildwood Park fascinates visitors with its collection of ruins rescued from buildings in Toronto. There are over 70 relics taken from the old buildings of Toronto and Southern Ontario designated for demolition. Once a thriving artists' community and waterfront resort for the area, the park boasted art installations and decorative "follies" made from these relics. In particular, a Greek theater stage built from the pillars of one of Toronto's heritage banks, became a highlight for production companies and weddings. Also on site was the now derelict Guild Inn - owned by the Clark family, who were considerable patrons of the arts. The inn had been both a hotel and an art gallery, as well as a home for artists and artisans. Now the park is owned and maintained by the city of Toronto.
