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

I can't recommend the walks that emanate from this oasis of peace in inner suburban Toronto more highly. Having just arrived from an intercontinental flight I needed somewhere to stretch my legs in the spring sunshine and downloaded a map from the Toronto tourism site. So glad I did. Commencing at the Mount Pleasant Rd entrance to the cemetery you... More

That cemetery is amazing, it's extremely peaceful and there is even a classic orchestra during the Summer months. It's really nice if you are looking for something quiet and beautiful.

quiet and serene space for a meditative walk, a jog or a photographic adventure. Open all year round the cemetery boasts beautiful headstones and sculptures that come to life in the early morning or late evening hours.

The cemetery is always tranquil, and well maintained. Our son is buried there and we are very comfortable going to visit the site.
