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.

  • Ive lived in the area for a few years and i only recently discovered the music garden. Really nice and tranquil place to watch the sunrise (or set). Lots of poke stops. Peaceful little city oasis
  • A truly unique facility built by the city of Toronto. Beautiful mature and well-tended gardens, laid out to mirror musical compositions. There is an outdoor performance area where musicians perform in the summer.
  • It's a very beautiful garden. It was quite difficult to get to at first, but after asking around, we found it. Location is gorgeous.
  • This is probably my favourite area of the waterfront. It's a unique park with very organic pathways that slowly weave in circular patterns. Lots of shade and fresh air.
  • This whimsical little garden trail that runs along the harbourfront. There are plagues to explain the plantings and the rationale behind the areas.
