Originally built in 1940 but closed to the public since 1988, the Sculptor’s Cabin in Guild Park re-opened yesterday (June 8, 2019) after more than 30 years of neglect.
The restoration and re-opening of the Sculptor’s Cabin is the result of three years of collaborative efforts by the City of Toronto (Jo Ann Pynn, Nadira Pattison, Julie Frost and Councillor Paul Ainslie) and active volunteers from Friends of Guild Park, Guild Festival Theatre, Guild Renaissance Group and Guildwood Village Community Association.
In this video from December 2018, John Mason, President, Friends of Guild Park, talks about the restoration proposal which has now come to fruition for our entire community to enjoy.
The re-opening of the Sculptor’s Cabin marks a major milestone in Guild Park’s ongoing revitalization. It will now serve as a seasonal Welcoming & Activity Centre for Guild Park visitors.
The official opening on June 8, 2019 was an event of incredible energy. We were there to catch some of it on camera.
