THE MCGILL STREET PARKETTE ON YONGE GETS A MUCH-NEEDED FIXUP

MCGILLPARK1The McGill Street Parkette, Yonge at McGill, is looking much better these days. After a cleanup and general rebuild it’s one of two neighbouring parkettes that have been upgraded.

MCGILLPARK2The stone arch is from the former St. Andrew’s United Church on Bloor Street at Park Road. The church was demolished in 1981, but a surviving arch was rebuilt here as a pedestrian gateway.
