Brief Description

The Toronto Sculpture Garden is located at 115 King St. east, just east of Church St., directly across the street from St. James Cathedral and between two of the oldest buildings in the city, dating from the 1840s. Although the historical aspect of the area is evident, artists are not required to incorporate this into their projects. The Sculpture Garden is an invitation to let the imagination roam and an opportunity to dream and experiment. The park is approximately 80′ by 100′ (25m x 30m) and is open to the public between 8am and 11pm. With its proximity to King St. to the north and the St. Lawrence market neighbourhood to the south, the park serves a wide variety of users, from those who live and work in the area to visitors to the neighbourhood and the City, people of all ages, those seeking out art and those coming across it by accident. Artists are asked to create proposals within the space to the east of the central pathway.
