Let’s All Go For a Swim at the Inn On The Park!

innontheparkToronto is having a hot and crazy summer, so what better way to beat the heat than to but on your cotton bikini or high waisted woolen swim trunks, and go for a swim at the elegant Inn on the Park? Oh, wait. Right. It’s been torn down for a car dealership. But you can still buy a vintage postcard to remember the good times that were… on Ebay!

    ,,,and the Postcard’s in Romania! …We had a Sheraton Inn in Midway St. Paul with pool and nightclub torn down just a few years back for a Super Target! Area used to be a mecca for car dealerships. 90% are gone to the far suburbs now, but the 1930’s Art Deco Prom Ballroom just down the street [University Avenue] was torn down within the last 20 years or so for a foreign car dealership!

    or … come to the Toronto Postcard Club Show held each February. There are maybe 1 million postcards available for sale (seriously!) and it’s held just down the street at the Japanese Canadian Cultural Centre. The 2014 date is Sunday, Feb. 23rd and all the details are on the TPC web-site. PS – the card shown, if available at the show, would sell for about half this price or less!

    We used to skate at the Inn on the Park in the winters when we were kids. They had live deer in the middle fenced off and a skating rink -which was the path in the summer- frozen over. The memories were lovely- and now only a condo or two,office and parking lot remain…

    I remember the Inn on the Park well. Returning from Europe in August 1966 we stayed there the same day the Beatles played Maple Leaf Gardens. I can’t say I remember the pool though!

    Cheers,
