A Walk in the Park - James Gardens, Toronto

By
Real Estate Agent with Sutton Group-Associates Realty Inc., Brokerage

James Gardens, Toronto, sits on the west bank of the Humber River, just south of Eglinton, and West of Scarlet Road, in West Toronto.

 

You can lawn bowl in the Summer, or cross-crountry Ski in the Winter ... you can't bike on the grass, but there are always many bikes along the concrete paths, which follow the Humber...



At James Gardens, you can enjoy the beautiful variety of flowers; sit, listen to, and watch the Humber River splash on the huge rocks; or simply watch the wildlife.  You can do nothing at all, or you can walk through the various stone paths that the park is well known for .... you can forget about life for a few peaceful moments....

If you're a bride, you've already booked James Gardens for your wedding photos ... if you haven't booked yet, don't forget you need a license. 

We rarely have four Seasons (usually it's Winter and August); but if you do enjoy watching the Seasons change, James Gardens is the perfect place to watch it happen....

Carole, I've had to get away from home recently, very early in the morning, so I don't lose my mind (out-of-town-guests overdue for a flight home) ... and I agree that it is a spectacular place.  It was chilly this morning, but the sun was coming out when I was leaving, and it turned out to be a great day.  I walked for so long, and so far up the side of the hill, that my legs are still sore....
But I will probably do it again tomorrow.

I will visit with you when you come here. :)

Hi Silvie - I haven't been to James Gardens.  You have very nice photos of the park.  I was at a different City of Toronto park in the east end yesterday with very nice gardens that I'll be posting within the next few days.  Some of your photos remind me of Edwards Gardens.

Hi Marc.  I used to go to James Gardens all the time, when I was younger, but haven't been there in a long time.  It was good to get away and have some 'me' time for a few hours. 
I'm looking forward to your photos.

Hi Terry ... not quite back yet ... with some luck, maybe in a month or so.  But I'll try to come back to read you once in a while. :)

 

Laura, the park is gorgeous, and there certainly is something for everyone.  One of these days I'll have to explore the areas I haven't seen yet and I'll post more photos.
