Attractions & things to do for the kids in your life

Toronto Music Garden (Toronto)

Family Tested

On a fun note

Few people think to walk beyond the popular Harbourfront Centre so the Toronto Music Garden feels like an oasis in the midst of the city. The garden is developed following a dance theme. When you access it from its eastern entrance, you first encounter the Minuet section, with beautiful hand-made ornamental steel adorning its rotunda. Down from the rotunda, you reach a gentle slope broken with grass stairs forming a sort of curved amphitheatre facing the water, called the Gigue. Both sections are the chosen stages for free dance and music shows during the summer. There's also the Sarabande with spiralling trail, the Courante, with its tall Maypole spinning in the wind, and the Prelude, with granite boulders. You can rent headphones (at the Marina Quay West near the western side) for a self-guided tour including music segments associated with the different dances.
