BRICK BY BRICK DEMOLISHED = “THE BIG PARK”

Another section of Regent Park North, nestled beside the future home of the Aquatic Centre, was demolished last week.

The architectural drawing  from 1937,  depicts a park bounded by Dundas St. E., Sackville St., Oak St., and Sumach St., Toronto.

The area demolished situates  a large central park  within the same bounderies.

Good thing they keep the drawings.

The question of whether to build the project in the first place was put to Toronto voters in the municipal elections of 1947. Voters, enthused at the idea that unseemly slums would be cleared to make way for clean, modern dwellings, enthusiastically endorsed the idea.
