Toronto topples water tower
On June 21, the City of Toronto will begin work to demolish an old water tower that was decommissioned in 1970.

The tower, subject of public complaints as an eyesore, will be replaced with a community garden that will be run by the East Scarborough Storefront.

Date: Thursday, June 21
Time: 2 p.m.
Location: 4040 Lawrence Ave. E., beside the East Scarborough Storefront

Media are invited to learn more about the demolition, and the plans for the space, and tour the site. Media interested in touring the site need to wear safety boots with a steel toe, as the site will be under construction. Hard hats will be provided.

The press conference will take place out of the construction zone, so those without safety shoes can participate.

Toronto is Canada’s largest city and sixth largest government, and home to a diverse population of about 2.6 million people. It is the economic engine of Canada and one of the greenest and most creative cities in North America. In the past three years Toronto has won more than 50 awards for quality and innovation in delivering public services. Toronto’s government is dedicated to prosperity, opportunity and liveability for all its residents.
