Great day activity, especially with a family. The park has two dog parks and a fantastic outdoor play centre for the kids. Lovely collection of flora. A nice retreat escape. Close to Yonge and College and the Gay Village.

I've been to Toronto many times before this year, but never went to Allan Gardens. It is beautiful. Very neat how it is decided in to different climates. Great way to spend an hour or so, and it's free!

Allan Gardens offers a leisurely stroll around a greenhouse full of exotic plants. It's a nice distraction from the city and a welcome taste of nature and colour.

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

And if you visit it during the winter is a lovely experience as everything inside is green and warm when outside is cold and white!
