Very enjoyable. Self guided audio tours available - rent the wands at the marina office for $6.00. There are lots of places to sit and enjoy. They also have live music some afternoons. Plenty of curving paths and manicured gardens. Lots of flowers.

Perhaps the information given in the booklet was missing details because there was no music as I stroll around the garden. It was not what it was called.

I had downloaded the Bach Suite No. 1 beforehand and listened to it as I strolled the garden. I am glad I did because I never found the office for the self-guided tour. Also, if you are thinking a picnic or snack---be advised there is...More

Queen Street and West Queen West
Known as the Art & Design District, West Queen West is
one of the most energetic and dynamic of Toronto's
neighborhoods. Along with its great modernist museums,
clubs, and restaurants, it's home to some of the
funkiest specialty shops, ranging from clothing to
stationary to collectables, and caters to niche and
vintage shoppers of all kinds. That makes it a mecca
for creatives, including hobbyists designers, writers,
