Run distance: 11 km
Part of my run involved running through the section of Currie Barracks that is still intact. Some of this land has already been redeveloped into homes, some of it has been temporarily repurposed (i.e different types of businesses, including a private school) but the rest of it is slated to be redeveloped into a new inner city housing community.
The history of the Currie Barracks dates back to 1933, when the Canadian Army opened this base. It is my understanding that it became a major military center over the years housing thousands of army personnel. It was closed in 1999 and within a couple of short years, everything still standing will be torn done in place of fancy new modern dwellings.
