Photo #98 - Sunnyside Park

Sunnyside Amusement Park was a popular amusement park west of the Exhibition Grounds and along Lake Ontario. It operated from 1922 to 1955 and was demolished in 1955 to facilitate the building of the Gardiner Expressway project. A new boardwalk, constructed of planks of recycled plastic has been built along the shore from the foot of Roncesvalles west to the Humber River. Along the bath of the old boardwalk, the Martin Goodman Trail bicycle path has been constructed. These meet at the Humber River mouth where a pedestrian bridge was constructed to cross the Humber River to lakeshore parks to the west of the river. The water at the beach was long considered too polluted for swimming, but is now open for swimming most of the summer and efforts are being made to reduce pollution further. Water quality is improving; a major tunnel was built to contain most of the storm water that was polluting the river, diverting the water to wastewater treatment.

Photo #99 - Queen Street

Queen Street West describes both the western branch of Queen Street, a major east-west thoroughfare, and a series of neighbourhoods or commercial districts, situated west of Yonge Street in downtown Toronto. Queen Street was the cartographical baseline for the original east-west avenues of Toronto's grid pattern of major streets. The western end of Queen (sometimes simply referred to as "Queen West") is now best known as a centre for Canadian broadcasting, music, performance, fashion, and the visual arts. Over the past twenty-five years, Queen West has become an international arts centre, and a major tourist attraction in Toronto.

Yes, that is Old City Hall. I have a separate post for that on page one.

Did you mean York region or the neighbourhood in Toronto called York? The neighbourhood of York already has a few photos here, including the ones featured around the Humber river.

Photo #103 - Looking down King Street

The street was named after King George III, the reigning British monarch at the time the street was being built in early Toronto (then called the Town of York). King Street is also served along its entire length by the Toronto Transit Commission's 504 King streetcar, the busiest line in the fleet with an average of 50,000 passengers per day. In recent years there has been a proliferation of chic restaurants, clubs and galleries in the area as King Street West becomes more oriented to Toronto's nightlife crowd, and is near major attractions such as the Rogers Centre (formerly Skydome), Air Canada Centre, The Distillery District, Hockey Hall of Fame, Roy Thomson Hall, Hummingbird Centre, St. Lawrence Market and the historic King Edward Hotel. Canada's Walk of Fame runs along King Street from John Street to Simcoe Street and south on Simcoe. It is a tribute in granite to Canadians who have gained fame in the fields of music, literature, journalism, dance, sports, acting, entertainment and broadcasting.

Photo #105 - Sunnyside Pavilion

The Sunnyside Bathing Pavilion was renovated in 1980. The outdoor lockers and changing area was demolished and new changing rooms were built in the east wing of the pavilion. The west wing now houses a cafe with patio on the boardwalk and a tea garden. The beach to the south of the pavilion now hosts beach volleyball. The Pavilion and surrounding park hosts regular multicultural events and a Canada Day celebration. The pool was rededicated as the 'Gus Ryder Pool', named after the founder and coach of the Lakeshore Swim Club of New Toronto.

I'd love to live in Melbourne as well. I have relatives in New Zealand, so it wouldn't be too far either.

These are the ferry docks that depart from Toronto Harbour over to the Islands. The ferry that I am on will port at Centre Island.
