Queen's Park is one of the oldest urban parks in Canada, opened in 1860 by Edward, Prince of Wales; it was named in honour of Queen Victoria. The park is landscaped in a traditional British design with its paths, shaded by large trees that offer respite from the hot summer sun, radiating out in a hub pattern.

About Queen's Park
This area is home to one of Canada's top-ranking schools, beautiful neo-Gothic buildings, and a tree-dotted park with monuments, footpaths and benches. It's a lovely area to explore by foot, and offers easy access to the rest of the city via public transportation. Bustling pubs and diverse restaurants attract a young crowd, as well as those who work in the legislative buildings housed in the university campus.
The park is bordered on its West side by buildings belonging to Toronto University, and on its north side by Royal Ontario Museum and George R. Gardiner Museum of Ceramic Art. The park has several statues, including an equestrian statue of Edward VII, which was moved from Delhi, India.
