Toronto Music Garden, Toronto

4.4
#12 of 55 in Parks in Toronto
Fans of classical music appreciate Toronto Music Garden, a picturesque urban green space and outdoor music venue inspired by Bach’s First Suite for Unaccompanied Cello. Curves and swirling pathways as well as graded seating typify the gardens' attractive architecture. Designed by landscape architect Julie Moir Messervy with help from internationally famed cellist Yo Yo Ma, the gardens host an array of concerts throughout the year; check the schedule ahead of arrival. Even if there are no events scheduled, take some time out for contemplation in these verdant settings.

    Perhaps the information given in the booklet was missing details because there was no music as I stroll around the garden. It was not what it was called.  more »

    Relatively targeted, we went to the park with a certain expectation because of the name. Actual music there was none, only a few bum and a few tourists. Nevertheless, the park with many different and colorful flowers is planted and beautiful to look at. Roads are single signs to different dance styles, etc. Otherwise the waterfront park. If you're so anyway in the southwest of the city, you can still visit the music garden and enjoy. We were somewhat disappointed, because the simple concept was not up to our expectations.

    I had downloaded the Bach Suite No. 1 beforehand and listened to it as I strolled the garden. I am glad I did because I never found the office for the self-guided tour. Also, if you are thinking a pic...  more »

    Although I mostly go here in the summer, it still is beautiful in the winter. You don't have to be big into the classical compositions they base the layout on. It's simply just gorgeous with the decor, the varying plants and trees. Plus, you can walk along the edge of Lake Ontario while admiring the edges. It's a nice, calm place to just relax for a few and enjoy the scenery.

    A walk to remember. It's hard to believe how much this area has changed in the past 20 years. I remember working at Ontario Place and there barely was any glass Condo on Lake Share.

    Nice little park with pleasant, small shows. Not very big, but gorgeous. Would be better if more people picked up after their dogs.

    Great place to hang out and relax, enjoy the waterfront. Musical themes are beautiful and inviting, and provide lots of little secluded areas to get away from the noise of the city.

    So beautiful there. Lots of beautiful flowers and really well cared for. Lovely walk

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.
