Trinity Bellwoods Park Gates
This is the view across the road from yesterday's pic showing the wonderful gates at the entrance to Trinity Bellwoods Park. The park is located right downtown on West Queen St West and was originally the site of Trinity College which opened here in 1852 but moved to the University of Toronto campus in 1925 when the land was sold to the city of Toronto. The buildings were demolished in the 1950s but the gates remained and were finally restored and re-installed in 2007 after years of neglect. It is a huge park with rinks, swimming pool, off-leash dog areas, etc, and is also used for a lot of cultural events. And it is famous for the white squirrels which I have seen many times and I will attempt to get a pic of one!
