A wonderful park allows you the opportunity to enjoy a stroll surrounded by tree's and many squirrels. Visiting The palace of Power that is Queens Park is an exciting affair. Hopefully you can meet one of Ontario's MPP's or the premier. Attend a session of The Ontario Legislature too. Perhaps a protest is happening out front you can experience and... More

It's absolutely pretty to walk in the park and see the skyline through the trees. Lots of cute little squirrels around. Sommer visits provide some shade and benches to relax your feet while sightseeing the city. In winter I have already seen cross country skiers :-)

I have walked around the grounds many times. The area is beautiful. Best time to go: Canada Day. Free hot dogs and drinks and lots of people having fun.

I love it here. It's quite close from our house here, and it is amazing to relax. We were working close by, and it was amazing to get lunch sitting on the benches here. Many squirrels, nice people exercising, beautiful views. Worth a visit if time is not a problem in your visit in toronto.

Great place to learn about Ontario's political roots! Would recommend taking a tour they are free and enjoyable! Big, sprawling equipment and plenty of space to run around.

Was getting a lot of use when we stopped by. Nicely designed and taken care of. Not a "must see" but a great spot for a rest/break if you are nearby.

Enjoy a walk in the park and along University Avenue. Much better than catching the red bus! You can visit the University along the way as well as other old historical buildings such as the State Legislature building. Close to places such as Chinatown and Kensington market.

Staying in Downtown

Neighbourhood Profile
At the heart of Toronto, Downtown is the destination for cheap eats and fast fashion. Cut through by hip and trendy Yonge Street, the vibe here is young, with a strong student influence from the Ryerson University Campus. As a result, the Downtown area is always in flux: undergoing the construction of new facilities, with fresh retail spaces and pop-up cafes. Home to Toronto's largest indoor shopping mall, a number of vintage cinemas, and a healthy nightlife centered on the area's Distillery District bar and clubs near the East End, it's both an easygoing daytime spot and a popular party place after sunset. It also features some of Toronto's best outdoor landmarks, including Yonge-Dundas Square and the Nathan Phillips Square: perfect for a concert, a skate, or a relaxing sit-down.
