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.

Toronto Music Garden Reviews

Rated 4.7 out of 5 Star Rating

5 Star Rating Such a beautiful park, right on the waterfront. The spring flowers were in full bloom, and the park was alive with birds, bees, kids, dogs, and bright sun. Extraordinarily well-kept and clean. Well done, Toronto!

3 Star Rating While the place may be overhyped and crowded, it does offer a pleasant view that can make the experience worthwhile despite the crowds. Sometimes the ambiance and scenery can outweigh the inconveniences.

5 Star Rating Serene environment. Great for picnics with family and has a walking trail for solo walks or walks with pets. The summers are awesome here with live band performances. Nice views of the Harbour front and the iconic CN Tower. Also a great place for marriage proposals (witnessed a few beautiful ones during the summer) 😉
