An Autumn Afternoon At Lytton Sunken Gardens, Toronto

Lytton Sunken Gardens features ‘romantic’ design elements such as winding staircases and balconies for you to overlook the garden from. The garden was a donation to the city in memory of Mr. Herbert Begg by his daughters, this is why it’s often referred to as the Herbert Begg Memorial Garden or Begg’s Garden.

The sunken gardens are surrounded by beautiful Georgian, Colonial, American Foursquare, Victorian and Tudor style homes that were built mostly between 1920 and 1945, and it’s clear some of these architectural elements inspired the garden’s design.
