  • Nice place to have a good walk. You can take a look at the parliament in the same area as well. Worth the visit.  more »
  • The Park is a beautiful place, really charming, as I visited in the summer was all in blossom, which made the special place for photos on the site you will also see the building of the Legislative Assembly and the Royal Ontario Museum. Recommend the visitation.

  • Despite the cold and snow at the time of my visit, the Park is large and offers her charms. We saw many free squirrels in the trees and yielded very good pictures.

  • Checking in was easy as long as I had an I'd with photos. Although it was 6pm when I came into the building I found the guards very relaxed and helpful as the place is huge. Very positive visit. Everyone was helpful even the cleaning staff when I was looking for an exit.
  • This wonderful, elegant, professional 'pink castle' has elegance, grandeur, power and a personal touch. As the seat of Ontario political power, it is a place to be studied: 'seldom seen but often wondered at'.
  • Lovely little park in downtown Toronto. The trees are quite interesting if you stop to notice!
  • Tour guide was excellent a providing bilingual explanations. Gift shop lady was super nice. Wonderful tour and learning experience for anyone wanting to learn more about provincial government and history
  • Good place for picnic or to walk around. Very green well maintained park . Peaceful relaxing environment. I usually go here to walk in evenings since it helps me in relaxing . Also you can always see people who are on strike come around this area for negotiations .
