Queen’s Park is situated in downtown Toronto and was named after Queen Victoria. It is the home of some of Toronto’s best architecture that dates back to the 1800’s. Queen’s Park is the home of the Legislative Assembly of Ontario which was built on the foundation of a former Insane Asylum. It is known to be one of the most haunted buildings in Toronto. I wrote an article about 10 of the most haunted buildings a few years ago. The article can be found here: https://torontopics.me/2016/10/30/10-most-of-the-haunted-buildings-in-toronto/
If you’re a photographer who enjoys shooting architecture, this is one of the best areas to visit in Toronto. While some of the buildings are older, such as Whitney Block, there are some more modern buildings which are beautiful examples of modern architecture, such as the Ontario Power Generation (OPG) building. the OPG building is just south of the Ontario Legislature and has a “U” shape – covered in blue glass. There is a photo of this in the gallery below.
Another building of significance is the Frost Building which is just on the east side of the Legislative Assembly. the Frost Building is an example of mid-century architecture and still has a modern look to this day. It’s curved in shape and is 7 stories in height. There are a few photos of the Frost Building in the gallery and pictured below.
While you are in the area, you can visit the grounds of the University of Toronto as Queen’s Park is adjacent to it. The best way to get around the area is by foot and getting there is easy as Queen’s Park Subway Station is close by. Enjoy the area and make sure you bring a camera!
