Alexander Muir Memorial Gardens

The Alexander Memorial Gardens is located on the east side of Yonge Street, below Lawrence Avenue. The park was created in 1933 by public subscription to honour Alexander Muir, who composed the song "The Maple Leaf Forever". The park was originally located opposite Mount Pleasant Cemetery on Yonge Street, but was moved to its present location in 1951 due to the construction of the Yonge subway. The park at its present location was formally dedicated on May 28, 1952.

The Gardens are a favourite for wedding photographers, and there were a couple of wedding parties and photographers onsite the day I took these shots. I finished the day with a few shots of the Toronto Public Library at the corner of Yonge Street and Lawrence Avenue, prior to heading home on the subway.
