Wanless Park

SKU: 120

Wanless Park, located in North Toronto, is a charming residential neighbourhood centred around the park of the same name.


First Nations, dating back over 10,000 years, including the Mississaugas, Seneca, Anishinaabe, Haudenosaunee, and the Wendat, inhabited this area.


Wanless Park, sits on land that was once Waverly Farm, which in 1912 was planned to be a suburb called Waverly Park. The First World War and the Great Depression interrupted this development. It wasn’t until 1931 that Wanless Park was born, named after John Wanless, a Toronto Alderman and educator.


The park itself is centered around a club house, home to both the tennis club and camp offices. It was renovated in 2014.


A little known piece of Wanless Park Club House/ LocalesDesign trivia, is that a certain budding Toronto artist of the late 1960’s ( perhaps the partner of the founder of LocalesDesign), at the age of 5 was given a set of paints, and with his best friend Mike, allegedly painted the walls of the boys washroom. The artists / criminal pair were apprehended by Joe, the maintenance man, and sentenced to an afternoon of community service cleaning the walls of said washroom. Further, the pair were banned from using the washroom for a whole summer, and thus often seen racing home in their batman costumes after drinking too much grape Fanta from the club house pop machine.
