    Friends of Guild Park hosts outdoor walks that give a close-up look at artifacts saved from some of Toronto’s notable buildings – structures that fell to the wrecking ball decades ago. The outdoor tours are coordinated with separate tours organized by the City of Toronto at Guild Park’s new Clark Centre for the Arts. Free, advance registration is required on-line through Toronto Doors Open.

    Since its inception in 2000, Doors Open Toronto has attracted more than two million visits to nearly 700 unique locations. It is Canada’s largest Doors Open event and one of the three largest in the world. 

    Join us at the park.  There is always room for more friends.
