Toronto Music Garden at night

The winter is cruel to the waterfront in winter, no one wants to freeze their asses off while watching ice in the water bob along to the waves. Only hardcore runners still make the journey along the path beside the waters edge and bikers risk their balance when snow and ice makes the day treacherous. But a couple things make the journey worth while - Winter at Ontario Place, the upcoming art installation Ice Breakers along Queens Quay and the Toronto Music Garden park.
Okay I was riding along the pathway in December, in the evening, cause I am crazy as well and I came upon the lights of the Music Garden. Illuminated musical notes hang from the gazebo as the purple and white harps follow along the curving pathways. The lights are part of the Spectacle of Lights stretching from the garden park to the spiral tree at the Westin Harbour Castle Hotel. The display is on from November to April.
The music garden is a great place to enjoy a summer day along the water. "This delightful garden — a reflection in landscape of Bach's Suite No. 1 in G Major for unaccompanied cello, BWV 1007 — was designed by internationally renowned cellist Yo Yo Ma and landscape designer Julie Moir Messervy, in collaboration with landscape architects from the City of Toronto's Parks and Recreation department. Two Canadian artists created special features for the Music Garden: Tom Tollefson, architectural blacksmith, fabricated the Music Pavilion; and Anne Roberts, Feir Mill Design Inc., designed the Maypole."
