The cob courtyard at Dufferin Grove Park is a staff-run cafe, open 4 hours a day in the summer. The rest of the time it's a castle, or a fort, or a mosaic art piece, or a place for a homeless person to set up a (roofless) house, with mattress and suitcase, or -- for two weeks every spring -- a backdrop for the earliest flowering Japanese cherry.

The cob courtyard is now 13 years old. Like everything else, it requires yearly maintenance. The maintenance logs are here.
