I went to this park early this morning, it was amazing some of the stuff I saw there. The building was an iconic design, the park was neat , the gardens layout was fantastic. Saw a lot of people taking pictures of some of the great inventors of the city. Nice place to explore what the city have to offer

Like the title says, I wish there was more to do in this park than to just stroll through. Despite being such a massive park, this feels like a leftover space in the City. Some interesting art features or places to host other activities would be great for this location. It feels more like an unsafe dead space.

It's absolutely pretty to walk in the park and see the skyline through the trees. Lots of cute little squirrels around. Sommer visits provide some shade and benches to relax your feet while sightseeing the city. In winter I have already seen cross country skiers :-)

I have walked around the grounds many times. The area is beautiful. Best time to go: Canada Day. Free hot dogs and drinks and lots of people having fun.

I love it here. It's quite close from our house here, and it is amazing to relax. We were working close by, and it was amazing to get lunch sitting on the benches here. Many squirrels, nice people exercising, beautiful views. Worth a visit if time is not a problem in your visit in toronto.

Great place to learn about Ontario's political roots! Would recommend taking a tour they are free and enjoyable! Big, sprawling equipment and plenty of space to run around.

Was getting a lot of use when we stopped by. Nicely designed and taken care of. Not a "must see" but a great spot for a rest/break if you are nearby.

The air is pervaded with music. different languages, and the smell of fried food and mouth-watering desserts. Chinatown's restaurants represent a broad range of fare, from traditional Szechuan and Shanghai foods, to other Asian delicacies, including some of the top Japanese, Vietnamese, and Korean spots in the city. Whether you're in the mood for a sit-down tea house or a bubble tea to go, Chinatown is the spot to enjoy an exciting walk and the promise of leaving satisfied.
