Central Ravines, Belt Line & Garden


BELT LINE LINEAR PARK Follow this 4.5 km recreational trail along the route of the 1890s Belt Line commuter steam railway which once circled the City. The tree-lined trail links neighbourhood parks and open spaces, providing an important natural corridor for wildlife movement across the city and connecting with Toronto’s Don River Valley. Enjoy the trail year round by walking, jogging, cross-country skiing, birding and appreciating nature.



MOUNT PLEASANT CEMETERY This cemetery, dating from 1873, was designed as an arboretum for the public to enjoy. Today, admire its spectacular floral and horticultural features, which provide a quiet oasis in the heart of Toronto. As well as containing one of North America’s finest collections of trees, the cemetery is also the final resting-place for many famous Canadians.



DON VALLEY BRICKWORKS Opened in 1889, the well known quarry and brick plant have been a source of bricks for many of Toronto’s most famous historic architectural sites. Look for the exposed sediment layers in the cliffs of the quarry, which are one of the best locations on the continent for scientists to study the geological past. Explore this recently restored site which combines many of the goals of urban resource management, including protecting a significant geological feature, improving water quality,enhancing wildlife habitat and linking trails, all in a strategic section of the Don River Valley.
