Photographer's Note

Ashbridge's Bay Park was named after Sarah Ashbridge, a Quaker widow and United Empire Loyalist from Philadelphia who settled here in 1793 and obtained a Crown land grant in 1799 for a farm. The marshes in the bay and lower Don Valley surrounding the Ashbridge's farm were very important habitat for waterfowl, including loons, wild geese, and wild swans
A waterfront park was developed for public recreation purposes and officially opened in 1977.
