Scarborough Civic Centre
The Scarborough Civic Centre, opened in 1973 by then mayor Albert Campbell and Queen Elizabeth in 1973, was designed by architect Raymond Moriyama with a vision to create the structure as a “people place” for the community.
Many trees surround the area with an open central area, benches and a waterfall and reflecting pool, used as a skating rink in winter.
Outside the civic centre on the north side is Albert Campbell Square, named after Albert Campbell, Scarborough’s first mayor.
In 1988 when the city of Scarborough was amalgamated into the city of Toronto, the Civic Centre became the municipal office site for Toronto’s eastern district.
It is now home to the Scarborough Community Council, a committee of councillors representing wards in the area to address local concerns of residents.
The five-storey holds the municipal offices, while the four-storey west tower holds offices of the Toronto District School Board.
Local services offered include licenses and bill payments.
