Alexander Muir Memorial Gardens

Address: 2901 YONGE ST Map It

These formal gardens are named after the famed composer Alexander Muir, the man who wrote the patriotic song 'The Maple Leaf Forever' in 1867. The maple leaf appears throughout the gardens in various decorative and natural forms. The multi-level Alexander Muir Memorial Gardens act as a gateway into the peaceful ravine system that features walking trails which are open year-round. Stroll among the herbs and flowers that bloom in Alexander Muir's magnificent setting, located along the Northern Ravines and Gardens Discovery Walk Route. Alexander Muir Memorial Gardens are a beautiful spot to spend a quiet summer afternoon. The gardens are also the western gateway to a long trail that eventually leads to Sunnybrook Park. Walking trails are open all year.
