Downsview is a cultural heritage landscape that reflects the place and the people over time.
What was once a forest has been forever changed in the course of a century and a half into a vibrant, diverse part of the City of Toronto. This booklet attempts to describe some elements of the transformation, and what remains today as a testimony of earlier times.
This booklet was produced with the generous assistance of the City of Toronto, the North York Community Preservation Panel, and the Downsview Lands Community Voice Association.
