It's possible that this map dates from the time when Gladstone Avenue ran through the park. Around that time there were big struggles around the apartment buildings on Rusholme -- the city had a plan to demolish more houses and to drive Dufferin Park Ave straight through from Dufferin Street to Hepbourne Street. But it was too late -- by then there was a growing opposition movement to high-rise developments and fast roads cutting through neighbourhoods (e.g. the Stop Spadina movement, the Quebec-Gothic Avenue movement). And pretty soon (when??) the road through the park was grassed over again too.
