The Guildwood Village Community Association has posted colouring pages on their website guildwood.on.ca/colouring-pages/
Guildwood Village Community Association’s official print publication, News & Views, is being hand-delivered right now to each household in Guildwood Village by volunteers. This happens 4 times a year. It’s really something. But wait, there’s more! Each edition is meticulously put together by volunteers too and the stories inside are researched, written, photographed and shared by volunteers. Usually about things or events created by volunteers. Did I mention volunteers had something to do with this?
It’s incredible and it’s been going on for decades.
Thank you to the volunteers of the GVCA 💪👊
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.
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.

The Guildwood Village Community Association put together an incredible Guildwood Day 2019 with huge support from Guildwood businesses, schools, churches and community groups. Despite the evening BBQ being cancelled due to severe weather forecasts today was fantastic!
Thank you GVCA and thank you to all of the many, many volunteers that made today a success!
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).”
