High Park Rocks

Winter is descending. Time to think about getting back on the ice — at the High Park Club. It’s an institution in the High Park neighbourhood, one of the oldest curling clubs in the city. It celebrated its centennial back in 2011. Check out this video, created by students at Bishop Marrocco/Thomas Merton Catholic High School (just click on the image). Then visit the club at 100 Indian Rd.
