[PHOTO] Fourteen photos of the new Grange Park in Toronto

I was alerted earlier this week by the likes of blogTO to the fact that renovations in Toronto’s Grange Park had been completed. Walking over there with a friend after catching the Monday night performance of The Seat Next To The King, we concluded that the work was a success. This marvelous green space in the heart of Toronto, with the Art Gallery of Ontario and its Georgian Grange Manor and Frank Gehry wing of glass blue titanium to the north and OCAD University with its simple stunning Sharp Centre for Design to the east, the refurbished Grange is a relaxing friendly place for people to walk and recharge. The Henry Moore sculptures, Two Large Forms, relocated here from their former location at Dundas and McCaul amid some controversy last year, belong here–indeed, surrounded by organic forms of all sizes and scales, they arguably look better than they did directly on the street.
