Lovely peaceful walking space, a few interesting graves but not as old or picturesque as the name implies. The chapel is worth a quick visit. If you are in the area, have a walk and look at some of the inhabitants.

This was my second visit since visiting it a few years ago. The cemetery is filled with mature trees and shrubs offering a quiet, shaded, cool respite from a hot sunny day. Well maintained, it is very welcoming and filled with history. Strolling through the...More

This cemetery is in the middle of the city and offers a quiet place of reflection. We visited just before dark. Not sure I could stay past sunset. A great place of history and reverence.

A necropolis is a large ancient cemetery with elaborate tomb stones. Toronto Necropolis is not that large and the tomb stones are not anything crazy. Mount pleasant cemetery is definitely larger with all kinds of tomb stones, monuments and mausoleums and a better choice if...More

A nice place for a stroll if you're into doing walks in cemeteries. It has a quiet charm and is a good place to visit if you want to learn something about those who were before us. Some interesting markers.

A nice old cemetery with many historical bits and pieces relating to Toronto and Cabbagetown's past. It's a pleasant, peaceful walk while imagining the lives of inhabitants here and a great place to reflect on life. Unfortunately due to snow, ice and tree debris I...More

An uplifting place to bring a date or go for a pic-nic! The "locals" are extremely quiet and mind their own business !! Perfect place to go on a rainy afternoon after a good dose of Prozak or Cypralex ! :) Highly recommended!!

Downtown
At the heart of Toronto, Downtown is the destination
for cheap eats and fast fashion. Cut through by hip
and trendy Yonge Street, the vibe here is young, with
a strong student influence from the Ryerson University
Campus. As a result, the Downtown area is always in
flux: undergoing the construction of new facilities,
with fresh retail spaces and pop-up cafes. Home to
Toronto's largest indoor shopping mall, a number of
