The theatre that is produced here in the summer is amazing. The seating in the amphitheare is very uncomfortable - bring extra padding to sit on, bug spray depending on when you go, and don't get packed in to close - make enough space for...More

This is a great thing to do on a weeknight. If you want good seating in the ledge stadium seating be sure to come early. Gates open at 6pm. However if you aren't too fussed, we got there by 7:30 and had a blanket to...More

Great way to spend a couple of hours! It's a donation entrance and you should get there early to find a spot. Bring snacks, blankets and bug spray.

If it's a nice night out, they will give your reserved seats away. It was a real bummer to make our way to the park just to be turned away with our tickets in our hands.

I was lucky enough to stumble upon this live theatre reenactment of Shakespeare 's Twelfth Night. What a brilliant performance in a beautiful setting. Although there was a van selling snacks and hot drinks, I did bring my own picnic for dinner and it was...More

This is our Summer tradition. Our 11 year old loves Shakespeare so it's a family must do every Summer. It's affordable and a bit too crowded at times but it's worth every effort. We encourage others to make a donation because those productions are amazing...More

This is a marvellous way to spend a summer evening with a group of friends or family. The performances are presented in a compact 90-110 minutes with no intermission. That makes them a great introduction for people exploring the particular Shakespeare work for the first...More

Decided to see Hamlet while visiting Toronto for a few days, after seeing that we could reach it by streetcar. Thoroughly enjoyed the play, it was a great production! Wish we had brought insect repellent and cushions-the mosquitos came out about 20 minutes before the...More

I came to see the show last night and was pleasantly surprised! I normally am not interested in this type of thing but was very impressed by the quality of the acting. The show was quite funny which I also didn't expect!

Downtown
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
