The Swan in Guild Park with the new path lighting in the background and Guild Festival Theatre wrapping up stage preparations at the “Greek Theatre” to the right (out of frame). If you think the Swan looks grumpy you may be right. It flew in all the way from London, England’s Piccadilly Circus after its building was destroyed in the Blitz during the Second World War.

We caught the evening sun baking Sorel Etrog’s sculpture, Ravenna, which was re-installed this week in Guild Park.

“Nana’s Book Nook” lending library opened today at Toynbee & Somerdale on this gorgeous First Day of Summer 2019 ☀️ The architecture in keeping with the unique mid-century modern character that makes up beautiful Guildwood Village.
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!
