Queen's Park offers an oasis within the city. The park, which was opened in 1860, contains Ontario's legislative building, which is a grand example of Victorian architecture. Start at the park's north end and walk under the refuge of tall shade trees; here you can also find an equestrian statue of Edward VII. At the southern end, you'll find Ontario's legislature, as well as numerous statues including those of Queen Victoria and Queen Elizabeth II. For travelers who use our world travel planner, Toronto holidays become easier to arrange, with trips to the Queen's Park and other attractions mapped out and timetabled.

  • Just beautiful and amazing. If you don't know yet, just go. Really good place to spend some time... Relaxing, reading, walking, eating...
  • Large, beautiful, old trees of all sorts. A nice break from the concrete jungle that is downtown Toronto. Visited on Canada day and there was fantastic band music playing all over! Cool spot.
  • First time going to this park in Toronto, and was pleasantly surprised at how active it is with runners and shade goers. If you are looking for some fresh air outside of the office during your lunch break, then this could be the best you could do in the middle of the city.
  • Queens Park is home to Ontario's provincial Capitol building. This is a quiet oasis from the noise of city life in the downtown core of Toronto. Here is a great place to just sit and leave the city behind.
