Toronto Music Garden

It a small garden but it is unique in a way as it is inspired by Johann Sebastian Bach’s classic musical work. Its six sections are based on the six movements in Bach's Suite No. 1 in G Major. For example, first section of the garden is designed in such a way that it gives you a feeling of flowing river with granite boulders and low growing plants. Second section is a forest grove with wandering trails to represent an ancient German dance 'allemande' in Bach's work.

Its shady trees, copses and labyrinth like inner spots makes you forget that it is actually located in a very busy area of the city. It is a prefect place to sit quietly, meditate, study, stroll or relax when you are in the waterfront area of downtown Toronto.
