Sculpture Sanctuary in Guild Park

The garden park at the edge of the Scarborough Bluffs is an interesting place to explore in winter time. You can walk through the scenic park full of the history of long ago Toronto buildings, rescued before the wrecking ball tore down old buildings to make way for the new.

The park at 201 Guildwood Parkway started as an Inn in 1914, then a home for artists, turned into a training base for the Women's Royal Naval Service personnel, then the Clarks began to collect the architectural pieces and finally in 1978 began life as a public park. It's definitely more intimate in the off season - just dress for the weather and score some great parking spots.

One of the biggest annual events is the Guild Park Arts Festival where you have to find parking at several strategic areas and take free shuttles into the festival because it is so popular. The Guild Alive with Culture 2020 dates are Saturday, July 25 to Sunday, July 26.

There are also theatrical and musical performances put on at the open air theatre presented by the Artistic Directors Helen Jovonen and Tyler J Seguin beginning with Alice in Wonderland and followed by Salt-Water Moon. Music series will be on three Sunday evenings in August.
