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.

  • Political and Public Crosspoint Here at this important point meet Government officials, politicians, and citizens for various events. Parliamentary meetings to discuss and debate public laws and Acts are held here. This is where Government and Public Citizenship matters. Recently attended a dual nationality type of event, Philippines Independence day celebrating a foreign immigrant country's nationhood by a flag raising. Before that a female citizen protested against Government spending $120,000 of public tax funds on a giant rubber duck as media interviewed for television. This is an important place for political issues for both Government officials and Public citizens.
  • There's always something happening at Queen's Park! If you're interested in seeing grassroots political statements and talk to interesting people, this is your place. If you're interested in just going through a park with great tree coverage, this is also your place!
  • A nice green spot in the middle of downtown Toronto. No playground for kids. Has benches and two impressive statues.
  • Incredible piece of history. Recommend anyone to sit in on our provincial government in action. A thoroughly enjoyable time filled with learning and education set in beauty to be proud of.
  • I have enjoyed Queens Park for 2 days. Clean and nice to hang out with kids. Best choice for picnic.
