We will soon be in Step 2 in Ontario and to be honest, I can’t wait to get a pedicure since personal care salons will be allowed to open. There isn’t a lot we can do at the moment in Step 1, but at least we can visit our favourite parks so I took the opportunity to go to Rosetta McClain Gardens in Toronto’s east end.
Rosetta McClain Gardens sits high on the Scarborough Bluffs and overlooks Lake Ontario, which was absolutely glistening on the day we went. This Toronto park offers beauty, peace and solace for those wanting to admire the flowers in bloom, walk around the perimeter of the park for exercise or sit and reflect on the benches surrounding the rock waterfall. (The waterfall had not been turned on when we were there.) Because no dogs are allowed in the park except service animals, this green space is more tranquil than neighbouring parks.
While the rock waterfall attracts a lot of attention, don’t miss the rose garden located on the northeast section of the park. When you venture to the eastern section of the park, you’ll also run into a charming gazebo and pergola, which would provide a romantic backdrop for wedding photos.
The southeastern section of the park is where you’ll get a magnificent view of Lake Ontario from your vantage point high up on the Scarborough Bluffs. There are several benches situated in this area for those (me!) who like to linger near the water.
I find hanging out in these gardens so relaxing and restorative. Many people seem to feel the way I do and of course, there are several visitors who enjoy taking photos of the flowers and birds that can be spotted at the park.
Rosetta McClain Gardens is located at 5 Glen Everest Road just south of Kingston Road and east of Birchmount Road. I hope you get a chance to visit!

These gardens are beautiful- you take such great photos. I can’t believe that the nail salons in Canada are still closed. I hope things open up safely for everyone soon.
Thank you! The nail salons opened up six days ago, but I haven’t made an appointment yet…I decided to do my own pedicure and it turned out pretty well! Cheers, Lori
