From Wikipedia:

Broadview Station was opened in 1966 as part of the original segment of the Bloor-Danforth line, from Keele Station in the west to Woodbine Station in the east.

In 2003, a renovation of the station began, adding an extra streetcar track, additional bus bays, new signage, and elevators/stairways to the platforms, satisfying fire safety requirements for a second exit.The elevators entered service in 2006, and the stairs from the westbound subway to the bus/streetcar platform afterwards. The next stage of the renovation was to build a stairway from the bus/streetcar platform to the eastbound subway platform. This was completed and opened in 2008; however, it was closed shortly afterwards due to water ingress. It has since been re-opened.

The northwest corner of the station property, which was not required for transit purposes, was leased to the former City of Toronto’s Parks Department, since the early 1970s, for use as a public park. During the upgrading of the station facilities in the 2000s, part of the parkette land was required to expand the streetcar platforms and the remainder was used as a staging area during the construction.Subsequently in 2010 the TTC declared this portion of the site surplus to its operating requirements and the City of Toronto, Parks, Forestry and Recreation agreed to maintain the re-landscaped land for use as a parkette.
