An Afternoon in Allan Gardens
Get away from the hustle and bustle of Church Street in the beautiful Allan Gardens park. Presenting a wide variety of programming, often with a social-justice theme, cultural programming, exhibits and art engagement.
Allan Gardens (founded in 1858) is one of the oldest parks in Toronto. It has a botanical conservatory, a playground and two fenced off-leash areas for dogs. The trees in the park represent the northern tip of the Carolinian forest with species such as black cherry, American beech, red oak, sugar maple and sassafras. Most are over one hundred years old and a 2008 inventory showed 309 trees in the park. The park is home to three varieties of squirrel, the gray, the black, and, unique to this park, the red tailed black squirrel. (Wikipedia)
