Simcoe ParkAddress: 240 FRONT ST W Map It
District: Toronto East York
This small parkette across the street from the Toronto Convention Centre is a good spot to eat lunch or have a quiet moment. It features the 'Worker's Monument', a millennial project by the Workplace Safety Insurance Board to honour lives lost due to workplace injury or illness, and a metal structure that represents the tent in which the newly appointed Lieutenant-Governor John Graves Simcoe and his family spent their first winter in York (Toronto) in 1793. Also located in this park is "mountain", an aluminium sculpture by internationally renowned British artist Anish Kapoor.
