This is a short creek drain, running just under a kilometer beneath the industrial/commercial lands south of Eglinton Avenue and west of Victoria Park. It carries the Wilson Brook under municipal works yards, the Victoria Village Arena, and an emergency snow dump site created in 1991 by burying a further section of the creek. The earliest section of the culvert, probably originally built of corrugated metal like the 1991 extension, was replaced in 2001 with concrete pipe (apparently bought on the cheap, see surplus manufacturer's markings, below). Wilson Brook is named after an early pioneer family who farmed several properties on the heights above the East Don River, north and south of Eglinton Avenue This is a 2400mm RCP and 2700 CMP walking distance was 977.87 m Long the year of construction was 1971
