This brand new mosque will be located in Greater Toronto's Brampton area. This is an artist illustration and as soon as the mosque is completed (inshAllah by the end of this year or 2013) we will update this post.
The two-storey, 10,000 sq.-ft. mosque will be built on the southeast corner of Hwy. 10 and Sandalwood Parkway. It will have a 96-foot tower, or minaret, topped with a blue dome
In December 1995, the Al Nusrat Mosque, moved to this location on the shores of St Lawrence River. It was a large rectangular building, providing a panoramic view. There were two main floors overlooking the river and a basement. The three floors provided about 10,000 square feet of space, with adequate washrooms on each floor and wudu (ablution) facilities. The main floor was carpeted and was used for prayers and seminars. The second floor had classrooms, kitchen facilities, and four guest rooms. There were separate entrances for men and women.
This building has been sold by the Ahmadiyya Community in 2012, and a new site has been acquired. We shall update this post as new information and pictures emerge.
Leisureland Fair was an amusement park which operated on this site from 1984 to 1992. It is now a housing estate with the only reference to it being a street named after it. The amusement park was situated on a large plot of land with a steam train which would take passengers from the carpark to the park itself. The park consisted of a large number of attractions including a custom built steel roller coaster, log flume, waterslides, mini golf, a function centre and various other rides. The only remaining part of Leisureland Fair is the former Function Centre, otherwise known as "The Castle". This was renovated into a Community Centre and Place of Worship by the Ahmadiyya Movement. The Ahmadiyya Centre Melbourne was officially opened by Hadhrat Khalifatul Masih the 5th on his blessed Asia Pacific tour 2013. He led the Friday prayers and Friday sermon on the opening of this Centre on 11 October 2013.
