The Grange Park area of Toronto is named after the actual public park. The area has changed a lot over the years. It was once an upscale neighbourhood, then evolved into a working-class new immigrant community. Now it's a mixture of apartment buildings, single and semi-detached family homes, student housing and houses which have been transformed into restaurants, shops and art galleries. The public park has a wading pool, children's playground and many tree-lined paths.
There is usually a farmers' market one day per week offering residents a great selection of cheese and produce. Often in the Winter, it has an outdoor ice rink. This park is on the grounds of the Grange which is now the Art Gallery Of Ontario. The 'Grange' originates from the name of the mansion built in 1817 and willed to the AGO. The AGO has since expanded many times and is now 480,000 sq.ft. which makes it one of the largest Art Galleries in North America.
