Monday Mural

I'm linking up at Monday Mural hosted by Oakland Daily Photo.

June 2016 - Toronto ON


The mural design is inspired by Riverside rich sporting history and was created by muralist Monica Wickeler.



Toronto’s first Baseball diamond in Riverside,- Sunlight Park, skating that used to take place on the Don River, the former location of Toronto’s Cycling club (and current location of the World’s largest cycling trophy), and the long curling history in the area (Riverside is home to one of two of Toronto’s curling clubs). Painted with a beautiful aged patina Wickeler also interwove the historical topography of Riverside and the Don River area.
