If you have time following your Easter getaway at Gananoque Inn & Spa, make the trip west to Toronto. Anyone familiar with Canada’s most populous city knows Toronto is really a patchwork of neighbourhoods, many of them distinct. Among the areas you should visit is Wychwood, north of the city’s downtown. Senior Writer Waheeda Harris recently wrote about how the community comes together around the Wychwood Barns art project.

In the article headlined “Toronto’s Wychwood Barns sparks creativity and community spirit,” Harris writes: “The Wychwood Barns, located in Toronto’s mid-town area, a block south of St. Clair Avenue West and on Christie Street, has become a model for a new view of enriching an urban community via art. Built between 1913 and 1921, the five brick buildings that make up the Wychwood Barns were a main hub of Toronto’s transit system, acting as streetcar houses until 1978. By the mid-1980s, the barns were vacant, 4.3 acres left desolate in the growing city.”
