Description

James Walter Lyon used the land he had purchased, not only for industry, but for parks. Lyon donated the land necessary for the creation of Riverside Park in 1905 which some suspect was a ploy at generating more traffic for Lyon's Guelph Radial Railway as families would use street rail to travel to the park for picnics, skating, and other activities. Lyon also donated the land for a park in 1908 which, to this day, bears his name.
