Where I lived when my family first moved to Toronto from Ottawa. (1965) Inn on the Park was a luxury hotel that once graced the hill overlooking Leslie Street and Eglinton Avenue.
The hotel was surrounded by 600 acres of parkland, and included Café Discotheque, Canada's first disco. There were Olympic-sized pools, a small golf course and a ballroom.
Built by Architect Peter Dickinson, who built the first Four Seasons Hotel in 1961. From the air the hotel appeared as the Star of David, a tribute to founder Isadore Sharp's Jewish origins.
