Travelling for work isn’t always easy, but your temporary stay in downtown Toronto can be slightly more enjoyable if you’re surrounded by breathtaking scenery and lush gardens. Take in everything this beautiful city has to offer, both its urbane cultural diversity as well as its natural splendor. Enjoy spring in Toronto by taking a stroll through the picturesque parks and landscapes that adorn this historical and unique city in your spare time. Here’s a guide to some of the most famous gardens and parks in Toronto that attract nature lovers from all over the world.

High Park

There’s always something fun and exciting to do in High Park during the spring and summer months. Whether you’re in the mood to take a nice relaxing walk through the park, interact with some of the friendly wildlife that frequent the premises, watch the cherry blossoms bloom in the spring, or take in a Shakespeare in the Park performance, there’s always something for everyone to enjoy during a temporary stay in downtown Toronto! If you don’t feel like walking or running through the park, you can also take a 30-minute scenic ride on the trackless train and take in everything the park has to offer.

Toronto Island Park

If you ever find yourself needing a reprieve from the hectic hustle and bustle of daily city life, then take a short ferry ride over to the Toronto Islands. Nothing is more relaxing and refreshing quite like the stunning view of the Toronto city skyline, comingled with the natural wonder that is Lake Ontario. You can take the ferry over to Ward’s Island, Centre Island, or Hanlan’s Point and revel in the soothing sounds of nature and move at a much slower pace.

Mount Pleasant Cemetery

As gloomy as it may seem, walking the majestic grounds of Toronto’s Mount Pleasant Cemetery can be strangely calming. Surrounded by unimaginable scenery including beautiful white stone mausoleums festooned with large columns, gorgeous fountains, and wide walkways, there’s a lot to take in while walking alongside the burial sites. The well-maintained grounds make it resemble more of a park or garden than a cemetery in Toronto.
