YORKDALE Opened in 1964 110 stores, over 1 million square feet Largest in Canada and for a short time in the world Yorkdale may have sucked the life out of Weston Road but it has had a major impact on the local

Meant to reproduce an urban streetscape with 240 stores and services Return is over $1,000 per square foot (highest in Canada) Over 400,000 visitors per week (Niagara Parks average about 15 million visitors annually majority are tourists) About 300,000 per week

This is a public/private space Mentioned in most tourist books on Toronto However this brings up some interesting considerations There should be evidence that this is a tourist centre and a recreation centre (facilities) There should be evidence of tourists Perhaps most importantly, the management should

be concerned about the presence of both onetime visitors AND regular visitors to the Centre. THERE SHOULD BE EVIDENCE THAT THE MANAGEMENT IS AWARE OF THIS POTENTIAL PROBLEM On your trip to Yorkdale Do not talk to management or retailers . Just observe Be polite and unobtrusive

Have a good time while you work (this is recreation). Can observe with classmates but must submit an individual paper.
