McKenzie Marsh Changing Landscape

The McKenzie Marsh property on St. John’s Sideroad in Aurora has been sold and landscaping behind the pond began sometime in May. Changes can be seen from the main boardwalk observation deck just West of the railroad tracks on the North side of the road. The pond is transforming and the standing trees and shrubs in the midst of the pond are progressively collapsing. Also note that on the East side of the pond behind the leaf-less landmark oak tree (I think it is an oak) a white cell tower post appeared sometime last year standing behind the water treatment facility.

McKenzie Marsh Interesting Story

“For most of the kids growing up around the McKenzie Marsh, 220 Old Yonge St. was the scary house. According to longtime residents of the neighbourhood, children would dare each other to run up, knock on the door and run back to their friends, who were positioned behind nearby bushes. When the Brodbecks first saw the home during a 1996 City of Toronto sale, it was in scary condition. The 19th-century Victorian farmhouse came with broken and boarded up windows, barbed wire adorning the roof and old satellite dishes.” Read full story here: VIDEO: Aurora house holds secret
