Michael Power Park | Etobicoke

You know you are old when you take your toddler to a park that is located on the exact spot where your high school used to be. Michael Power/St Joseph's High School was long ago razed to make room for a condo complex. The homes encircle a large playground with a wonderful water feature. My little man sized up the spouts from all angles before he attacked. (I think this is where north portable was!)

The playground is huge and lots of fun. If there was a Toddler Olympics, we would have won gold in Baby Swinging. I'm pretty sure the smoking section was somewhere here. So funny... what high school has a smoking section? Those days are long gone.

Michael Power Park is located at the corner of Dundas St. West and Michael Power Place in Etobicoke. Rosie :)

Hi there,

We we're just looking up the address to Michael Power Park for my daughter's get-together when we ran across your review.

You were correct... it is the sight of the north(west) portable... the smoking area was right around there and if you remember well so was the building where the priests lived in.

Just a few days ago I finished telling my family that same bit of information.

Anyway, thanks for the blast from the past.
