Queen’s Park

Named after England’s Queen Victoria, Queen’s Park is surrounded by the University of Toronto which was earlier known as Queen’s College. The Park was established in 1860 and remains one of the oldest parks standing today in Canada. Quick fact: the Park was inaugurated in the presence of the then Prince of Wales, Edward VII. The northern area of the park also holds his statue. With footpaths in a hub pattern, it is the structured English landscaped gardens that catch the eye.
