Guild Park & Gardens has been a setting for dozens of popular movies, TV programs and music videos. The Doors Open tour highlights film as part of the legacy of today's Guild Park. Visit the places where Drake, Sir Lawrence Olivier, Lillian Gish, Martha & the Muffins, John Candy and many others filmed or stayed. In 2000 the film "Skulls" was filmed here. Guests will see the features that have attracted Hollywood stars as well as notable Canadian artists: the park's unique architectural facades, public art and the surrounding Carolinian forest with striking views over the Scarborough Bluffs. The tour describes how the site, originally used by the First Nations, became home to an Irish immigrant, a family estate for a Canadian soldier, then Canada's only artists community to operate during the Depression. See how it is being revitalized today as a place for nature, the arts, and more.
