Photo: Toronto's Place

Of all the places I'd expect a park to be named after Toronto, New Westminster wouldn't be one of them. And yet, there it is. Toronto Place Park is a half-acre green space at the corner of Eighth Street and Royal Avenue, dating back in its current form to 1910. It was originally supposed to be a public square, and got its name because when British Columbia joined Canada in 1871, Toronto was the "largest and oldest city of Ontario" - though I really don't see why that has much of a bearing on anything.

Nice little park though.
