At the south end of the former Ontario Government building (now the Liberty Grand) at Exhibition Place is another plaque celebrating Marilyn Bell. Here's what the plaque says:
Plaque coordinates: 43.630667 -79.426630
This plaque is dedicated to the honour of Marilyn Bell, a Toronto, Ontario girl who on Sept. 9th, 1954, at the age of 16 years, performed the magnificent athletic feat of swimming the full width of Lake Ontario, thus being the first know person to have accomplished this arduous task, of which all Canadians are justly proud.
