The Toronto Music Garden is a celebration of music and art inspired by the first of a six part film series by Renowned Cellest Yo-Yo Ma titled 'Inspired by Bach'. In the first film of the series, Yo-Yo Ma and renowned landscape designer, Julie Moir Messervy worked together to interpret Bach's first suite in nature. The garden was originally planned for Boston, but after that fell through the project was embraced by Toronto.
The 3 acre garden is divided into 6 sections inspired by the movements of Bach's Suite No. 1 for Unaccompanied Cello. The sections are Prelude, Allemande, Courante, Sarabnade, Menuett, and Gigue. The park is a beautiful spot to quietly meditate on art and nature.
Be sure to take advantage of the 'Summer Music in the Garden' concert series held in the gardens on Thursdays at 7 pm and on Sundays at 4 pm.
You will find the Toronto Music Garden located in the Harbourfront District. For more information about the park visit the official site link below.

Nice little park down by the lake. Beautiful flowers and gardens. Nice switch from the lakefront boardwalk.

Nice little park with pleasant, small shows. Not very big, but gorgeous. Would be better if more people picked up after their dogs.

Although I mostly go here in the summer, it still is beautiful in the winter. You don't have to be big into the classical compositions they base the layout on. It's simply just gorgeous with the decor, the varying plants and trees. Plus, you can walk along the edge of Lake Ontario while admiring the edges. It's a nice, calm place to just relax for a few and enjoy the scenery.

Beautiful garden along the newly designed Toronto Waterfront. Really nice to enjoy the open lawn and small pathways that weave beautifully and thoughtfully through maintained gardens. Watch out for cyclists and roller bladers if you enter or exit from the sidewalk along Queens Quay.

We live close by and always walk around this area all 4 seasons. They have amazing spaces where you could have a picnic and just lounge around. You can watch the planes pass by landing at billly bishop airport. It's also nice to see the yacht parked. During the summer they have a concert series that is a must see!
