Inn on The Park Toronto

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 CafĂ© 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.
