Waterworks


 These stairs lead up to the top of the waterworks at St Clair & Spadina Rd. The whole area has recently undergone a long upgrade which also involved adding trees and native plants along the hillside. At the top of the stairs is a huge flat area that has tennis courts, gardens and a really long circular path for runners and walkers. The sign on the bottom building is quite worn but it says the structure was built in 1930.

That is an impressive structure. I wouldn't want to climb those stairs.

Those steps would have my legs aching.
Sounds like a great place to enjoy the outdoors and exercise.
Take care, enjoy your new week ahead!

Another fine looking facility from the 1930s in the neoclassical style. Good that all the recreational facilities have been added, and the stairs look like a major workout.

This is wonderful, as these great old buildings often are, they are a true source of not just need but greatness in their many designs!

Looked it up on Goggle maps. That is one massive underground reservoir.
