Garden Nature / Park
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. With our world travel planner, Toronto attractions like Toronto Music Garden can be center stage of your vacation plans, and you can find out about other attractions like it, unlike it, near it, and miles away.

  • 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
