The Methodist Fresh Air Home was opened in 1902 at the west end of Heydenshore Park. It was summer resort home for underprivileged children from Toronto. The building was demolished after 1932.

Heydenshore Park was a summer resort established around 1900 east of Whitby Harbour. A number of cottages were built there starting in 1900 and were demolished in 1965 when the private park was sold to the Whitby Public Utilities Commission. In 1971 Heydenshore Park was sold to the Town of Whitby.
