Lorne Park, now considered a suburban residential neighbourhood in southwestern Mississauga, Ontario, Canada, first started as an exclusive resort. This 75 acre "pleasure grounds," operated by the Toronto Park Association, included separate parlours for men and women, bowling lanes and merry-go-rounds. Travel to the resort from Toronto was often by steamer. After a series of bankruptcies, the resort lands were sold to cottagers. With access of the QEW highway, suburbanization of the original lands and surrounding area ensued in the post WWII period. (Brown, 1997 Toronto's Lost Villages)
