While I do have family here I still find this an amazing place to visit and explore. There is a lot of Canadian history here and over the last 140 years it has developed into a world class collection of trees, shrubs and flowers. What is unusual is that it can be viewed in the different seasons and you will... More

This cemetary has so many: trees of various kinds, birds of many description, different pathways, where you can only run into monuments or masoleums representing Canada's past. The walk through the cemetary allows one to get exercise, and you will see cyclists, joggers, walkers. What a lovely way to pass a morning or afternoon.

I have family in this cemetery but it is also a lovely, well kept place for a walk on a nice day. It has nice trees and plants.

Okay, the idea of taking exercise in a cemetery freaked me out but this place is huge and is a great place for running, only traffic is generally slow moving. Some of the tombstones are amazing and it's a place alive with stories. Not in the least bit creepy. Lots of joggers. A very peaceful spot indeed.

Not a must see but makes a nice walk looking for famous Canadians. We found Knowlton Nash, Timothy Eaton and Eddie Greenspan. The mausoleum has the tomb of the most decorated soldier from WW1. Trees are often labelled for nature lovers. Beautiful spot.

We went for a walk along the Beltline trail and ended up in Mt. Pleasant Cemetery last weekend. Amazing beautiful and serene. Unusual and evocative resting places, from Prime Ministers to hockey players to firemen. We explored just a small portion and can only only imagine what we will discover on our next visit.

Mount Pleasant Cemetery is conveniently centrally located to downtown Toronto, featuring exceptional and well manicured, peaceful grounds. The roadway meanders through the cemetery and is often used as hiking and running trails by people in the surrounding neighbourhood. Access points are off Yonge Street on one side and Bayview Avenue on the opposite side, Moore Park and Merton Streets run... More

The cemetery is quite peaceful and what caught my attention where the histories raleted to it, worth to hear about it and see.

This place is fascinating - there are tours available about the history and the flora and a lot to learn. My last visit was during the beautiful fall colours. The park-like setting is serene.

Staying in Midtown

Neighbourhood Profile
Midtown is a dynamic part of Toronto with some of its most stylish high-rise residences and heritage buildings. The area sees busy shoppers with bag-laden arms balancing lattes in paper cups as they travel from one luxury brand to the next, taking advantage of the proximity of high-end shops. The reflecting pools, jogging trails, and nature treks of the Rosehill Revision are always a hub of outdoor activity, and after a workout from either running or splurging, many take advantage of the spas and massage parlors Midtown has to offer. Away from the bakeries, boutiques, and glamorous old theaters of the district's center, locals use the weekend to embrace the more suburban feel of Midtown's parks, tennis courts, outdoor markets, and the manicured grounds of Casa Loma, while families indulge the area's state-of-the-art playground and learning facilities. Of course, no high-brow district is complete without a healthy counter-culture: Midtown boasts some of the wildest street art and full-wall graffiti of any neighborhood in Toronto.
