Toronto’s Most Unique Park

Toronto's Best Park

Located in Scarborough, the Guild Park and Gardens is a 36-hectare hidden beauty and one of Toronto’s most unique parks. Like many others, the land is well kept with colourful gardens and lush forest. However, one thing differentiates Guild Park from others. Historic sculptures and arches litter the grounds, giving the park character.

A Bit of History

The land and estate was purchased in 1932 by the Clarks who were passionate about art. They opened a rent-free home for craftspeople and artisans and collected many sculptures and architectural masterpieces, many of which are still displayed in the park. Today, the estate is the historic Guild Inn, which was recently renovated as a wedding venue.

The Park Today

The Guild Park and Gardens is a photographer’s paradise. In the few hours that we were there, we saw a family photo shoot as well as a fashion blogger. It was also easy to envision an engagement or wedding shoot as the park is open to the public. Keep in mind that professional photography requires a permit from the city. Overall, we had a lot of fun just taking pictures and strolling through the park. As part of the Scarborough Bluffs park, it is definitely worth a trip!
