The Toronto Township Recreation Department formed in 1947 and began to offer organized sports and recreation to residents. Jerry Love was hired in 1959 to organize sport clinics for youth in summer playgrounds across the township.
The park shown here is tentatively identified as A. E. Crookes Park located at 855 Goodwin Road. The park was named after local businessman Albert Crookes and was a 6 acre park used as a neighbourhood sports facility.
