This past weekend I decided to take a walk and see what spring in the park had to offer. Still too early to enjoy the annual plantings, there was no shortage of beauty around... including naturalized flowering bulbs, wildflowers, perennials, and walking paths throughout the entire park to enjoy.
Originally a private estate owned by Fred James, purchased in 1908, this garden was his passion and was developed for over 40 years. When he passed away, the family sold the property to the City of Toronto with the agreement that it remain a park. With history of over 100 years, there is sure to be something for everyone at James Gardens.
James Gardens is a great way to spend an afternoon at any time of year... and don't forget your camera!
Located on Edenbridge Drive, just East of Royal York Road.
