Long Description:
Guildwood Park is the former Guild Inn, and was taken over by the City of Toronto after the Inn failed in 2001. Now the area is known as Guildwood Park, encompassing 90 acres of land that has quite a history.

The park is best known for the sculpture garden behind the hotel, which consists of the facades from several buildings (mostly in downtown Toronto) that have been relocated here. The garden is currently being maintained by the City of Toronto.

The park is sort of difficult to spot, as it isn't signed off Guildwood Parkway so you may find yourself driving past the entrance. Posted co-ordinates are close to the entrance. Just look for the dilapitated hotel tower and you can't miss it.

Note - the park is set for a renovation in early 2009 as the City and Centennial College will be building a conference centre and restaurant here.
