More than 155 architecturally, historically, culturally and socially significant buildings across the city of Toronto will fling open their doors to the public for one weekend—May 23-24, 2015. In honour of the upcoming Toronto 2015 Pan American/Parapan American Games, this year’s theme of Sports, Recreation and Leisure offers attendees a sneak peek inside private and public recreational sites, ranging from aquatic centres to athletics stadiums. The building lineup includes the Goldring Centre for High-Performance Sport and the Toronto Track and Field Centre, which will serve as athlete training and warm-up facilities during the Games.
Since its inception in 2000, Doors Open Toronto has attracted more than two million visits to nearly 650 unique locations across the city. It is Canada’s largest Doors Open event and one of the three largest Doors Open events in the world. Doors Open Toronto is dedicated to built heritage, architecture and design. It is presented by Great Gulf and produced by the City of Toronto in partnership with the broader community.
