Toronto Sculpture Garden: Gold, Silver & Lead

Right now, there is a stack of Honda Civics piled up in the Toronto Sculpture Garden. Gold, Silver & Lead, the free park’s current exhibit, is very cool.

The Toronto Sculpture Garden was established in 1981, making it one of the city’s oldest public art spaces. It was a collaboration between the City of Toronto and the Louis L. Odette family, who provided funding for the project. The garden aims to bring art into the public realm, offering residents and visitors the opportunity to engage with contemporary sculptural works in an outdoor setting.

This lush enclosed green space features a variety of installations and sculptures, which changed periodically over time. Artists are invited to exhibit their work here and each installation typically remained on display for several months. I love this little garden for its tranquility and fascinating exhibits which are free to the public, and my little man loves it for the absolutely fantastic waterfall fountain. It’s really unique and peaceful place to enjoy in the heart of the city.

The Toronto Sculpture Garden is situated directly across from St. James Cathedral and is nestled between two of the city’s oldest buildings, which have roots dating back to the 1840s. The park spans approximately 80 feet by 100 feet (25 meters by 30 meters) in size. It is the perfect spot to admire the architecture of this stunning church, which has the tallest tower and spire in Canada.
