Allan Gardens Conservatory Park

The large glassed dome and greenhouses of Allan Gardens Conservatory are set in a large park at the corner of Jarvis and Carlton in Toronto. Entrance to the greenhouses is free and open year round! This place is the jewel in the rough area that surrounds (including the Moss Park area) the mature trees and grass.
The park is one of the oldest in Toronto and there were quite a few people and their dogs enjoying the fenced off leash free zone. The park and gardens has an interesting history, the property was donated to the city by George William Allan (he was once mayor of Toronto) and opened by the Prince of Wales in 1860.

You did a nice job for organizing this park, as a conservatory. It is looking, so nice.
