If you need a calming place to walk in, then this is your location. There are old trees, nice monuments and beautiful grave statues and you will find yourself reading the gravestones after a while. It has a soothing effect, as if reminding us how short life is and what is most valuable.

When I was young this was the best place in the city for leaf collections as there is a wide collection of trees , many identified, forming a canopy over the quiet grave markers below. Cemetary walks are not for everyone but if you want miles of walking jogging biking or hiking do visit. You may even get lost.

This cemetery does not feel like one. It has bicycle paths, walkways and there are concerts in the cemetery during the summer. It is well groomed, the place is like a garden. Some people go there and have picnics. If you have a loved one interred in the cemetery, visitors are welcomed. I go with my friend to visit her... More

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.

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.
