English Sunnyside Bathing Pavilion
Sunnyside Bathing Pavilion is a landmark public pavilion in the Sunnyside lakefront area of Toronto, Ontario, Canada. Built in 1922, its original function was to provide changing facilities for swimming in Lake Ontario, however lake conditions were often too cold and an adjoining public swimming pool was built in 1925. The Pavilion was renovated in 1980 to provide updated changing facilities and a café along the beach and a garden.

The Sunnyside Bathing Pavilion is fanciful structure and a remnant of the former Sunnyside Amusement Park, demolished in 1955. The arches and towers on the south side of the building seem similar to Mexican Colonial architecture. The south side overlooks a beach. On the west side of the pavilion there is an entrance to a courtyard containing plants and a water fountain. Be sure to go around to the north side of the building to see the rather grand-looking entrance. WC is available from the courtyard.
