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.

Where to stay in Toronto

Most visitors stay in the historic neighborhood of Old Toronto, as the central district offers unparalleled access to the best attractions in the city and several metro stations within walking distance. If you're looking for a different taste of Toronto, stay in the trendy neighborhoods of West Queen West or King West Village, popular for their nightlife, arts, and cafe scenes. You can embrace Toronto's multicultural charms by staying in Chinatown, perhaps the city's best location for foodies.
