I travel this several times a week, usually on the subway. I have always been impressed by the forethought of the city planners who included the space for the subway, despite the fact that plans for the subway were decades into the future. This story was included in the novel - The Skin of the Lion.
My first visit was before it even opened - it was part of a geography teachers' PD day to study the impact of this major theme park on the surrounding area. Since then we have had many family visits plus some graduating student outings. I do not like heights, so all of the roller coasters have not attraction for me...unlike my husband and stepson!
This was always the final stop on our Grade Nine geography trip. I gave the students a bit of history and some of the ideas that have been put forth in terms of how to use these silos, including a Toronto Music Museum. A great view from Little Norway Park.
Lots of fond memories of family visits to this pioneer village. However, one of my favourite was the first time I came with my stepson. After several hours of touring, he wanted to know if pioneer families were like ours. When questioned, he said ' Did pioneer families have a mommy, a daddy and a Cheryl like ours?'
