Toronto Throws Open Its Doors

Every year Doors Open is an event to look forward to, for many it is our only chance to peek into hidden corners of Toronto's rich cultural and historical background. For no admission fee, except perhaps a little patience, you can wander back in time to see what made places like The Carlu, Liberty Grand or St. Lawrence Hall thrive.

New to the list this year is the much talked about Palais Royale, currently undergoing a 2 million dollar renovation. Even though it isn't fully completed, the public is allowed in (Sunday only) to view the work-in-progress. Also new to the list are the Cadbury Chocolate Factory, the tall ship Empire Sandy and MTV's new digs at The Masonic Temple. Popular photographer hang-out, the Don Valley Brick Works, will also be open to sightseers with representatives from Evergreen on-hand to show you a bit about the site's proposed enviro-friendly redevelopment strategy and help you plant a tree. Bring your friends, family and your camera.
