Queen’s Park

University and Wellesley Aves.
Toronto, Ontario, M5A 2N4, Canada

A stones throw from University of Toronto's main campus, Queen's Park is the home of the Ontario Legislature. The oval-shaped landmark includes a north park of footpaths, tall shade trees, and a large statue of Edward VI on horseback, while the south park, which fronts the main entrance to the legislative building, displays statues including Queen Elizabeth II, Sir John A. Macdonald (Canada's first Prime Minister), and celebrated Canadian poet, Al Purdy. The pink-hued legislative building was constructed between 1886 and 1893 in a Richardsonian Romaneque style that some criticized for being "too American."
