Roundhouse Park is city-owned green space in Toronto’s downtown core. Located on the former Railway Lands, the 6.9-hector park (established in 1997) is home to John Street Roundhouse (complete with 37-metre turntable), a collection of trains and rolling stock (four full-sized locomotives, three freight cars, two passenger cars, and one diesel multiple unit), a fully restored railway village (the former Don Station, Signal Cabin D [with toolshed], a watchman's shanty, a water tower, and a coaling tower), and Roundhouse Park Miniature Railway. John Street Roundhouse is a National Historic Site of Canada (1990)! Built for Canadian Pacific Railway between 1929 and 1931 to service steam locomotives, the 32-stall facility once featured the most modern technology including direct steaming facilities. Neat! It closed in 1982 following the railway’s switch from steam to diesel. Canadian Pacific Railway later donated the roundhouse to City of Toronto. Today, the roundhouse is home to Toronto Railway Museum, Steam Whistle Brewing, and The Rec Room (a restaurant and entertainment complex). Roundhouse Park is bounded by Bremen’s Boulevard, Lower Simcoe Street, Lake Shore Boulevard West, and Rees Street.
