Mural at the corner of Queen St E and Wineva in The Beaches neighbourhood celebrates the old Scarboro Amusement Park that provided lakeside entertainment for the good people of Toronto from about 1907 to the mid 1920s. Now only a small portion of the land is devoted to a beach and boardwalk.

  2. I like the contrast of the dark tree against the muted pastels.

  3. Beautiful mural! the lake and surroundings should have been kept that way…
    Happy MYM!

  4. For a few seconds I thoughts, that’s odd for a black tree in the middle of winter mural… but then of course it wasn’t part of the artwork… Great capture!

  5. I love well-done public murals, and this one has a mellow retro feel to it. Nice.
