Description

Construction on the Erindale dam began in 1904, however delays prevented it from being complete until 1910. When complete, the dam and hydro station produced electricity for the New Toronto area. The dam flooded much of the valley, creating a 125-acre lake where Erindale Park is today. Ontario Hydro operated the site from 1916 until 1923 when the facility was closed. In 1941 the lake was drained and the dam dynamited. In 1977, large portions of the dam and the hydro generating station were removed. Partial remnants, including a portion of the dam and the hydro tunnel which led to the generating station survive.
