    The small Toronto Sculture Garden, located at 115 King Street, is located almost opposite the St. James Cathedral. Discreet, almost imperceptible, the environment is well taken care of. Offers for views few statues.

    It's a small, cute little park with sculptures that can change depending on the time of year. Overall a very creative idea but not much else.

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.
