What a joke

It's unbelievable that this place is listed as an attraction in Toronto. It's a park the size of a living room with one unimpressive sculpture there. The only good thing about... read more

We spotted this attraction in our guide book and decided to head that way during a stroll round downtown Toronto when we stayed there in early September. The gardens are small but you can spot lots of squirrels and there are nice plants and a water fountain. Nice views of the adjacent Cathedral Church of St James. OK for a... More

Was an empty lot with a water feature when I went. There was a sign describing something interesting that was previously there.

I can't live here in these so-called sculptures. I'd rather live in a sculpture than just look at it.

Should have checked here first! Hoped to find a garden with sculptures. Reasonable expectation, I think. One sculpture. Yes, one. Uno. Une. Ein. At least there's no charge. We saw the one sculpture through the locked gates and moved on. Why do guide books even mention it, or maps include it?

I sculpture. 1 water feature and some nice landscaping in an area the size of most people's back yards.

Very small. It consists of only one sculpture (see photo). I’d say take a peek if you’re already in the area, otherwise no reason to go out of your way to see this place.

It was more exciting for me to read portuguese poetry in the subway near Eaton Square at lunch time. Conjugatng thirteen irregular italian verbs in the passato remoto is more exciting than visiting this place. If you must waste your time seeing a place of questionable value for tourists do not go out of your way to visit this place... More

Great picture op spot of St. James Cathedral. The garden itself was very small, or we got lost :) The greenery was nice. I took some lovely pics.

I guess it is called a sculpture garden and not a sculptures garden. Everything you see in the picture is it! A stack of white Honda Civics is the whole sculpture garden! And a waterfall. If you are walking by, stop, but do NOT go out of your way for this!

Staying in Downtown

Neighborhood Profile
At the heart of Toronto, Downtown is the destination for cheap eats and fast fashion. Cut through by hip and trendy Yonge Street, the vibe here is young, with a strong student influence from the Ryerson University Campus. As a result, the Downtown area is always in flux: undergoing the construction of new facilities, with fresh retail spaces and pop-up cafes. Home to Toronto's largest indoor shopping mall, a number of vintage cinemas, and a healthy nightlife centered on the area's Distillery District bar and clubs near the East End, it's both an easygoing daytime spot and a popular party place after sunset. It also features some of Toronto's best outdoor landmarks, including Yonge-Dundas Square and the Nathan Phillips Square: perfect for a concert, a skate, or a relaxing sit-down.
