I'm not a fan of visiting cemetery's, however this one has to be one of my favourite summer destinations for a nice walk and fresh air, and still being in the city! Lots of paths to run, walk, or bike on and has some hilly parts for those of you requiring something a tad more challenging. Great to visit alone... More

If you love trees, this is a lovely place to wander around. On a nice spring day the different shades of green everywhere are stunning. Great place for walking or bicycling. If you plan on becoming a permanent resident, go to the office.

It is located in the central core of Toronto, between Yonge St south of Davisville and Mt Pleasant. It is a cemetery that is also a park. It was established in 1876 and its tree collection has grown into one of North America’s finest arboretums. The park-like setting is enhanced by large flower gardens, birds and other wildlife, Show cased... More

While I do have family here I still find this an amazing place to visit and explore. There is a lot of Canadian history here and over the last 138 years it has developed into a world class collection of trees, shrubs and flowers. What is unusual is that it can be viewed in the different seasons and you will... More

The Cemetery opened in 1876 just outside city limits in those days. This large piece of parkland (200 Acres), has a wide selection of rare and not so rare trees, shrubs, flora and fauna (yes, if you are alert you might see a fox, a coyote, not to mention raccoons, squirrels and birds). The management has rightly earned a peerless... More

This is a large mid-city series of cemeteries that are near two large city streets and the Yonge subway line (between Davisville and St Clair). If you are looking for relatives, there is a good office with a computerized "look-up" system. The area is large so use the map to get to where you need.

This is a great place to walk by yourself or with friends. The roads circle round and it can get a bit confusing at times. Follow the road with lines down the middle to get to the exit on Yonge Street.

A place of solace and comfort! Mt. Pleasant Cemetery is a peaceful spot to walk through or just to sit and meditate. This cemetery is well maintained nestled in the heart of Toronto. It is full of history.

The cemetery is lovely to walk through any time of year, but to fully appreciate its tranquility and history, get away from the roads next to busy Yonge Street, Mount Pleasant and Bayview. In other words, stay in the middle parts of both sections of the cemetery. There is plenty of Toronto history there with modest stones mixed in with... More
