Canada’s 1948 Olympic gold medalist in women’s singles figure skating BARBARA ANN SCOTT (1928-2012) would be pleased to know that TORONTO and developers Canderel Stoneridge have agreed to rebuild both the skating rink and the park. Work is underway now between Yonge & Bay, just south of College Street.  The project should be completed by 2017.
