Celebrating its centennial in 2011, the High Park Club (HPC) is one of the oldest curling clubs in Toronto. Over the past 100 years, the club has seen remarkable change in its surroundings going from rural farmland and dirt roads to high density residential and commercial development. Located just east of High Park in the neighbourhood of Roncesvalles, it is also one of the oldest buildings in the area.
The High Park Curling and Lawn Bowling Club’s inaugural Ball was held on the rink floor on December 15, 1911. During the early years the club offered curling, lawn bowling, skating, indoor baseball, billiards and cards. In 1984, the lawn bowling greens were converted to lawn tennis courts.
Over the years, the interior of the club has seen numerous improvements including the most recent which was funded in part by the Canadian government’s Recreational Infrastructure Canada (RInC) program and by its members.
