The Project

Toronto’s most enchanting garden was designed by internationally renowned cellist Yo-Yo Ma and landscape designer Julie Moir Messervy, in collaboration with the City of Toronto’s Parks and Recreation department. It is a reflection in landscape of Bach’s Suite No.1 in G Major for unaccompanied cello, BWV 1007.


The Impact

The Toronto Music Garden can be appreciated on many levels – as a garden infused with the spirit of music, dance and artistic genius, as a public place for young and old alike to enjoy and learn, and as a meditative space to sit and quietly ponder nature. It is a symbol of Toronto’s participation in the international community, and a place for everyone to enjoy.

The Toronto Music Garden is open year-round and there is no admission fee. The Toronto Music Garden is wheelchair-accessible.

Donations will support the ongoing maintenance and programming for the Toronto Music Garden
