Queen's park is located just a couple of blocks south of the trendy neighbourhood of Yorkville. In addition to being the home of the Ontario Legislative Assembly, Queens Park features several commemorative statues including one of Edward VII who opened the park in 1860. There is also a war memorial. Paths radiate out from the statue Edward VII and there are plenty of large trees to provide shade on warm summer days.

Queen's Park is largely surrounded by the the University of Toronto and actually occupies the university land with the Ontario Legislature residing under a long term lease. Like most legislative buildings, the Ontario Legislative Building is an ornate and intricately detailed structure. Construction of the current building began in 1886 with several additions being added over the years.

Free tours are available year round on weekdays between 9 am and 4:30 pm. During the summer from Victoria Day until Labours Day free ½ hour tours are offered every day including weekends from 9 am until 4:30 pm.

4 Star Rating Great building. Architecture is amazing. They offer free guided tours every 30 minutes that are 30 minutes long. Unfortunately you can't see a lot but the building is still very impressive.

5 Star Rating Great building. My wife and I got a free and a private tour when we came in, which was nice. The tour covered a lot of interesting about the building and especially the Legislative Assembly - it was quite informative! There are definitely things to take pictures of inside.
