Beautiful!

Have been visiting Family there for years now. This is amazing peaceful place in the middle of a huge city. Many people bike, walk, jog or just visit because it is so beautiful.

Mount Pleasant Cemetery in central Toronto is 'THE' cemeteries of cemeteries for this large Canadian city. Developed in a centuries old park like setting- mature trees, rolling hills, manicured and landscaped acres of greenery and statuary, Mount Pleasant can appear more like a very elegant and old world British park - rather than the final resting place for thousands.

...but it's weird to rate this. It's a cemetery where my great grand parents are buried. There are gorgeous old trees and lovely historical plots. Just please remember to an active cemetery and behaviour should match the environment.

Just a walk among friends from the past. All walks of life....some famous names and some unknown. All reminding us that there is a beginning and an end

A good stroll in the park. It is great to exercise in and the park is attractive, but not worth a major stop in Toronto

Amazingly awesome grounds! Lots of trails and easy to get turned around and lost for hours. Strolling or roller blading or Nordic poling, really a gorgeous setting.

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

Staying in Midtown

Neighborhood Profile
Midtown
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.
