Attractions & things to do for the kids in your life

Village of Yorkville Park (Toronto)

Family Tested
High energy

Hoo la la!

The Village of Yorkville Park offers a unique patchwork of small gardens along posh Cumberland Street. It starts with a 650-ton mound of granite your child (or the child within you) will want to conquer (unless you’re wearing heels). It is flanked with tables and chairs and, weather permitting, a rain curtain waterfall sculpture. Further, you’ll find clusters of trees, tall grass and boardwalk, each neatly lined on what used to be the lots of Victorian houses. This is one of the best example of great urban design.
