The music is a charming path along Lake Ontario. In the summer there is mottled shade, cool lake breezes, lovely benches for sitting, and frequent musical performances. In the winter there are beautiful colors: leaves and bark, and the elaborate metalwork is exposed.

it's one of those places in Toronto that I always manage to kind of accidentally stumble upon, it's quite pretty and the thought that went into it is AMAZING but it's also kind of forgettable to be totally honest. very much "oh. yeha. here."

Very enjoyable. Self guided audio tours available - rent the wands at the marina office for $6.00. There are lots of places to sit and enjoy. They also have live music some afternoons. Plenty of curving paths and manicured gardens. Lots of flowers.

Queen Street and West Queen West
Known as the Art & Design District, West Queen West is
one of the most energetic and dynamic of Toronto's
neighborhoods. Along with its great modernist museums,
clubs, and restaurants, it's home to some of the
funkiest specialty shops, ranging from clothing to
stationary to collectables, and caters to niche and
vintage shoppers of all kinds. That makes it a mecca
for creatives, including hobbyists designers, writers,
