History of Algonquin Park

Algonquin Park was a former rhubarb farm purchased by the Board of Park Commissioners in the early 1920’s, setting it aside for use as public park land as they anticipated the city to expand south. The Olmsted Brothers firm finished the original master plan for the 16-acre park in January 1929.
