  • Massey Garden is a beautiful provincial public garden. It's a good spot for a run, or just a nice place to enjoy some greenery in the heart of the city. It feels very European to me.
  • Really nice Gardens. Play area and train ride for the kids. Nice cafe. Plenty of free parking round the edge.
