James Gardens

James Gardens, a former estate on the west bank of the Humber River, is known for its flower gardens, terraced stone pathways beside sparkling spring-fed pools and streams, and mature trees. The park features the historic James Gazebo, along with terraced pathways and the original home "Red Gables". Here, you can also find lawn bowling, cross-country skiing, memorial cairn in rose garden, and a scenic lookout over the Humber Valley to downtown Toronto.

This park is listed as one of the top 13 spots to see birds in Toronto in the City's Birds of Toronto Biodiversity Series booklet, which is available in libraries across the city.
