Taylor-Massey Creek Park
Taylor-Massey Creek is a tributary of the Don River in Toronto, Ontario. It flows through Scarborough and East York, where it enters the Don River. The creek is named after two prominent Toronto families. The Taylors were a wealthy family that owned and operated the Don Valley Brick Works. The Massey family were the owners of the Canadian farm equipment manufacturing company, Massey-Ferguson. Both families owned sizable estates in the vicinity of the creek. The Goulding Estate, a heritage property on Dawes Road was part of the Massey estate.
