A nice place to walk or bike

I love to walk and bike around this cemetery. It is a nice quiet place right in downtown Toronto. There are lots of interesting dead people to visit as well.

Attending a ceremony to remember the loss of a loved one or good friend is never easy. They do a first rate job of making the best out of a day we all don't want to have yet these situations will always happen.

Looking for a place for quiet relaxation in Toronto when you have a car is not so easy. But there is this beautifully quiet street that runs through this very large cemetery. Over the years I have come and rested here many times. But this time was special. I received a call from my friend Doug to play some chess,... More

This is a beautiful place, whether or not you have family/friends in the cemetery. Manicured grounds are great for running, walking and cycling.

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.

A beautiful cemetery in the upper/mid part of the city. You can drive or take TTC to get there. There is free parking in different lots in the cemetery. Many paths that are paved and great for running, walking or biking. There are several old parts of the cemetery as well as new parts and mausoleums. It can be a... More

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

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.
