This park was recently revamped with top of the line children's playground equipment that challenges the children to extend their comfort zone. Park has beautiful gardens and comfortable benches. Our grandchildren love it. Just south of the Art Gallery of Ontario. Highly recommended.

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
