Nothing like closed doors, locked gates and sky-high cement walls to keep us out of some of our city’s most interesting public spaces. Doors Open — a celebration held annually in cities around the globe — is all about letting us into these spaces, both public and private (and everywhere in between). Spacing reporter Andrew Walsh checked out two events that last weekend of May. In this SUMMER SHORT we get a sneak peak into the Toronto Transit Commission’s Greenwood Maintenance Shop and then tag along on a walk through the newly unveiled parts of Regent Park (because did you know that Regent Park has never really had a proper park up until now?).
