Do you want to find some cool places to visit without having to deal with the annoying crowds? This article will list the top 5 hidden spots you must visit in Toronto!
Located just south of Danforth Avenue, this hidden spot has an abundance of greenery to enjoy! Not only is Withrow Park incredibly picturesque with its skyline views, but it offers two playgrounds, a splash pad, a dog park, a baseball diamond, a skating rink, and more!
This is the perfect spot to hang out with friends or get some exercise outside of the gym!
Bampot Bohemian House of Tea & Board Games
Situated in Harbord Village, this teahouse offers far much more than a wide selection of teas and board games. This Mediterranean grub provides its visitors with a sense of peacefulness and comfort. Upon entrance, the staff asks you to remove your shoes, which makes you feel at home. The darker lighting and the scent of burning incense also contribute to the pleasant ambiance.
This is a great place to meet up with friends, bring a date or even just relax by yourself.

Toronto Music Garden
This whimsical and enchanting garden is hidden away in Toronto’s harbourfront. These swirling paths will take you through gorgeous greenery as you enjoy listening to live musical performances (during the warmer months).
Fun fact: The design of this park was inspired by Bach’s First Suite for Unaccompanied Cello and each dance movement within the suite corresponds to a different part of the garden.
Chester Hill Lookout
Located in a quiet residential road off Broadview Avenue, this lookout is the perfect spot to get a view of the Toronto city landscape. The giant painting of an astrological wheel on the ground of the lookout adds to its dreamy charm.
This spot is great for watching the sunset and beholding the city views — making this lookout perfect for a late-night date.
Allan Gardens Conservatory
Seated in the Garden District of Toronto, this conservatory includes a playground, a dog park, and most impressively, a 1,500 square metres conservatory with six greenhouses. The conservatory features a lush, green interior, featuring plants from a variety of climates.
This indoor botanical garden is an ideal (and free) place to visit for those looking to escape the concrete jungle of Toronto.
