Toronto Music Garden at Harbourfront in Toronto, Canada

Parallel to the Waterfront Trail is a beautiful oasis from the bustle of downtown. The Toronto Music Garden was designed by landscape architect Julie Moir Messervy and famous cellist (and 18 time Grammy Awards winner) Yo-Yo Ma. Why was a cellist involved? The flow of the garden represents the six movements in Johann Sebastian Bach’s First Suite for Unaccompanied Cello. This section portrays the third movement named courante. The maypole, created by Anne Roberts, punctuates the middle of a swirling pathway encircled with wildflowers.
