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
A nice garden an park overlooking lake Ontario. This is our family's favourite place. Lots of historical artifacts are installed here. You will find the oldest house in Scarborough in the park. If you like to go close to the lake, you can walk down the paved road. Newly constructed banquet hall replaced the old historical building
Surprisingly more underwhelming than you would anticipate. My family went for the home and garden tour to raise money for a local hospital. The grounds are nice, but the art seems to have been randomly placed in different parts of the park like accidentally, purposefully placed ornaments. The indoors seem like a convention centre, but the back windows look out onto beautiful hedges, nice place for a hall wedding.
Beautiful carving and gates. Super natural beauty. But alas, could not enter the lakeside due to bluffs. I am eager to know whether inside the park visitors are not allowed to sit on grass! People are roaming on the grass. It need to be instructed on a board rather than instructed verbally to leave the area as sitting would harmful to grass that staff have taking care of to grow. If the park has reserved for a party, that should be mentioned on the entrance so visitors won't enter.
A true hidden gem. Lovely gardens, salvaged columns and pieces of old buildings from aroud 1818 off King street make this one of Toronto's most unique parks. Very peaceful and quite. I think this is a great place for meditation and clearing your mind. If your not into that, the walking trails are fantastic too.
This is a lovely place to go visit. One of my favorites in the city. It's by the bluffs. It has so many different old architectural things it's amazing that companies just throw them away. Nice to have a picnic as well. The new wedding venue looks great.
