Last weekend we went for a walk through one of our city's beautiful old neighbourhoods, Cabbagetown. We started off at St. James Cemetery, which has a lovely little chapel (at the top of the page) that was designed by the architectural firm Cumberland & Storm, in 1861 (Cumberland, who lived in the Cumberland House).
We made our way down Parliament to Winchester St., and then went east all the way down to visit the Necropolis (Toronto's pioneer cemetery) and Riverdale Farm. The Necropolis has a beautiful chapel (above) and some wonderful old architectural and sculptural grave markers (below).
We found this awesome treehouse being built on a property that borders on the Necropolis:
And directly across the street is Riverdale farm. Sorry, no animal photos today, but we love their old barn:
The houses and trees in Cabbagetown are worth checking out themselves, lots of heritage buildings, and well-maintained gardens.
As we made our way home, we walked along Carlton to Yonge, passing Alan Gardens. And we end the tour there, having spent a great day visiting one of Toronto's most beautiful historic neighbourhoods, and all of it was free.
