Ivan Forrest Gardens (Toronto)

Enchanting little patch

Most visitors to The Beach neighbourhood seem to revolve around Kew Gardens. If you want to get away from the crowd while still enjoy the quaint feeling of The Beach, go further east on Queen Street to Ivan Forrest Gardens, the lovely patch of nature set at the corner of Queen and Glen Manor Drive. It is a small but enchanting oasis in a quiet part of The Beach. Walk down its path for 10 minutes to admire the great surrounding houses. It runs between Glen Manor Drive East and West. You’ll then encounter stairs leading to the entrance of Glen Stewart Ravine across the street. Ivan Forrest Gardens is our favourite spot to watch the Beach Easter Parade.
