Mount pleasant is an amazing outdoor park( with a lot of locals jogging/cutting through/ kids playing) with some pretty cool sculptures and mausoleums( The Masey Mausoleum is my favourite!). You would need to know canadian history to hunt for graves though. If you want an older, more historical cemetery, try the necropolis.

I often walk thru the cemetery on my way somewhere, ride my bike, or go running thru the paths in the mornings. I live nearby and it is a lovely part of the city. There are a number of famous people buried here including prime ministers , Glenn Gould, etc and some interesting monuments and crypts.

Nice cemetery for a quiet walk - well kept and cyclist/cars don't go too quickly through this area. A good option for crossing from Yonge to Mount Pleasant if you aren't rushing

My wife's father and his parents are buried in a plot at the Mount Pleasant Cemetery. We occasionally visit the grave site and always end up walking throughout the cemetery because for starters, it is beautiful and peaceful. The trees are enormous. Its a great place to go if you want a quiet place to think and just get away... More

The cemetery is an important part of Toronto's history and a fascinating park to walk through. A number of well-known Canadians are buried here, with Prime Minister William Lyon Mackenzie King (1874-1950) the best known. Both sides of the cemetery, which is divided by Mt Pleasant Road, are well worth visiting.

This huge, impeccably maintained cemetery is a local treasure and covers several acres. The more well-known section of the cemetery borders Yonge St. between St. Clair and Merton; this area contains some of the older and well-to-do graves. However, there are some real gems on the area east of Mount Pleasant (accessible via underpass near the Mt Pleasant & Merton... More

Staying in Midtown

Neighborhood Profile
Midtown is a dynamic part of Toronto with some of its most stylish high-rise residences and heritage buildings. The area sees busy shoppers with bag-laden arms balancing lattes in paper cups as they travel from one luxury brand to the next, taking advantage of the proximity of high-end shops. The reflecting pools, jogging trails, and nature treks of the Rosehill Revision are always a hub of outdoor activity, and after a workout from either running or splurging, many take advantage of the spas and massage parlors Midtown has to offer. Away from the bakeries, boutiques, and glamorous old theaters of the district's center, locals use the weekend to embrace the more suburban feel of Midtown's parks, tennis courts, outdoor markets, and the manicured grounds of Casa Loma, while families indulge the area's state-of-the-art playground and learning facilities. Of course, no high-brow district is complete without a healthy counter-culture: Midtown boasts some of the wildest street art and full-wall graffiti of any neighborhood in Toronto.
