“This is a great piece of legacy because it’s so different,” Robertson said. “It’s tangible. You can reach out and touch it, you can come and sit here, your kids can play in the park. It’s fabulous.”
The park is located at 319 Country Glen Road in Markham, a city just north of Toronto.
Robertson began his broadcasting career in 1952 at a radio station in his hometown of Stratford, Ont., before working in Guelph, Windsor, Winnipeg and Ottawa.
He joined CTV in 1976 and was promoted to chief anchor in 1983, a position that he held until 2011.
