Unlike other CNE buildings by G.W. Gouinlock, the Fire Hall/Police Station was not designed in the Beaux-Arts style. Instead, it has rather an eclectic architectural design featuring a clock tower, polychrome brick banding and a shallow pitched copper roof. Although the Fire Hall/Police Station has undergone several planned alterations, such as having modern, roll-up doors installed in the Fire Hall, the structure’s basic character remains intact. Today, the building continues to house a detachment of the Toronto Fire Department and Toronto Police Services during the CNE.
