Toronto, ON -Berczy Park -Sept 2014 pictures
Towards the end of 2013, I wrote a blog post on Berczy Park .....
and here are some follow-up pictures.
as there was a request for updates from a comment.
Today being a holiday, part of the long, Labour Day Weekend, there was time to meander around and take pictures. It was a hot sticky day, luckily no rain in the afternoon and therefore it was a good opportunity to take pictures. By this time, the crowds had dispersed following the Labour Day Parade in Toronto.

Bank to Condos …..
Over a hundred years ago, the Dominion Bank opened its new Headquarters on the SW corner of King St and Yonge St.
Now in 2014 this building is undergoing restoration work which includes repairing and cleaning the very rare white terra cotta facade; in the process of trying to make it look like it did in 1914.
This is the second restoration work, as in 2006 a new portion was added that rose 49 Floors, while keeping the original 14 storey building.

Berczy Park, Toronto, ON
There is a plan to re-design Berczy Park in 2014. When the park was created in 1982, there were few residents; and it was a minimalist park.
Public parks were meant to be green places for people to enjoy, places where children could roll on the grass.
Things have changed around Berczy Park in the last three decades; more than 2500 residential units have been built in the vicinity and more to come in the next few years; making it a small town, within the City of Toronto.
