Guild Park’s Sculptor’s Cabin Proposal

We met up with John Mason, President of Friends of Guild Park to hear about the proposed use of the Sculptor’s Cabin in Guild Park.

“After being closed for more than 30 years, Guild Park’s “Sculptor’s” cabin is being considered for future use as a small-scale welcome/activity centre for park visitors.”

“The volunteer groups that organize events and activities at Guild Park recently submitted a proposal to the City of Toronto. The report identifies many ways to partner with the City’s Arts Services division for re-opening and using this small, 230-sq.-ft. cabin, located near the front entrance of Guild Park.

In this 3-minute video, John Mason, President of Friends of Guild Park, gives some background about the cabin and how it might be used by park visitors in the summer of 2019. It’s another step forward in the remarkable and ongoing revitalization of Guild Park & Gardens, 201 Guildwood Pkwy., in Toronto’s Guildwood Village.

The Sculptor’s Cabin proposal is by the Guild Park Stakeholders Group, made up of volunteers from Friends of Guild Park, Guild Festival Theatre, Guild Renaissance Group and the Guildwood Village Community Assn.(GVCA).”
