Guild Park And Gardens - Review
This is at once one of Toronto’s most curious and intriguing attractions. In essence, it is a flower and sculpture garden, but the mystique lies in the garden’s origins. It is a failed artists colony that transformed into a sort of memorial of Toronto’s demolished buildings. For that’s what makes up the sculptures and monuments here - the leftovers of Old Toronto. These have been arranged into arrangements such as the The "Greek" Theatre, the historic Osterhout Cabin, the Engine House No. 2, and Art Deco arrangements from the Toronto Star Building are some examples of the 70 such decorations. The park also has a greenhouse and bike trails. There’s a beach too! Also check out the Historic Guild Inn.

Guild Park And Gardens, Toronto Reviews
This is legitimately my favourite park to go in Scarborough. It has no playground or anything of that sort, but it is still a fantastic location. It is simply for relaxation. Nice trails with historical figures surrounding the park grounds. There is a great view of Lake Ontario. There is lake access, but make sure your legs arent sore that day because it is quite a trek to get back up. Overall, fun location.
Free parking, modern facility, wall to wall windows. We were there for a mid size winter wedding so we had the whole facility to ourselves. Not sure what the parking situation would be like during the busy season but it was nice having the run of the facility to ourselves. Food was good. So we came back for a spring wedding and the place was packed. We thought we'd be stuck in the cold outside but that turned out to be somebody else's wedding. There were three other weddings inside one of which was the one we were attending (phew!). It got a little confusing finding the right wedding reception when we first got there and as well when finding our way back from the washroom. This time they served Chinese food which was okay. The Father of the Bride owns a Chinese restaurant with food that was far superior to what was being served but I suspect that the facility does not allow outside catering even if it's the from the father of the Bride.
My favorite park in all of the Greater Toronto Area. We went there with one of our family friends who live near there. The park is nothing short of picturesque. The flowers here are absolutely stunning. The statues are nice and add a bit of a historic feel to the park. It's great for Wedding photo shoots or a quick stroll with family and friends. Scenery is breathtaking. Highly recommended.
I wish there were more unobtrusively placed informational plaques. There are so many things here, but no idea what they are, what their historical importance may be or any other interesting details. Otherwise, great park. Lots of green space. Understandably popular wedding venue.
Better than before. Renovated, and re - designed. Quiet place on the weekdays and a bit crowded on the weekends. Overall a good place for a picnic, walk or cycling
