We're raising funds for a Heritage Plaque to Celebrate the Bank of Toronto (1914 - 1965) and Guild Park’s Greek Theatre (1982 - present)
Join us in commemorating the story about a landmark bank in downtown Toronto and how its marble features became a popular classical-style outdoor stage atop the Scarborough Bluffs .
Volunteers from Friends of Guild Park, in partnership with Heritage Toronto, are raising donations for an official Heritage Toronto plaque that celebrates:
Over the past century, the significance of the Bank of Toronto building has faded. The remarkable steps taken to save its elements and create today’s one-of-a-kind Greek Theatre risk being forgotten.
- the historic 1914 Bank of Toronto and its hand-carved columns, arches and panels;
- the people who preserved and repurposed the building’s architectural features; and
- the resulting Greek Theatre that’s now a destination in east Toronto for the public and performers.
By donating to this campaign for a Heritage Toronto plaque at Guild Park’s Greek Theatre, you’ll help bring back to life this important – and largely overlooked – story of the city’s development and Toronto’s architectural history.
All contributions to the Guild Park's Greek Theatre plaque project are made as donations to Heritage Toronto. Donations of $20 or more will receive a charitable tax receipts issued from the charity.
