The city of neighbourhoods, home to the world

When Toronto author and critic Robert Fulford wrote a book about his hometown, he called it Accidental City. It is the deliberate design of Canadian immigration policies, however, that has allowed Toronto to become the world’s most ethnically diverse metropolis. Half of the city proper’s 2.5 million residents are foreign born; there are more than 150 languages spoken daily. A cool politeness pervades the streets – the legacy of Toronto’s early years as a British military post.

Thomson Memorial Park

Family fun, history and more

Stay Editor's Note

Thomson Memorial Park was opened in 1960 to commemorate the founding of the city by the Thomson family, who arrived in the eastern Toronto section of Scarborough in 1796.

Opened 24 hours each day, Thomson Memorial Park is one of the nicest parks in the city, and it offers a variety of activities including tennis, soccer fields, softball, a wading pool for kids and a petting zoo.
