Metro Minute at Mount Pleasant

There’s a reason cemeteries are a popular place to go for an afternoon stroll: Between the peacefulness, the solemnity, and the beautifully landscaped grounds, they can be a haven from the busy downtown racket.

Next time you’re looking for a scenic route, you may want to check out Mount Pleasant Cemetery at 375 Mount Pleasant Rd. It is arguably Toronto’s most beautiful and most illustrious resting ground, with its noted architecture and host of famous remains. William Lyon Mackenzie lies amongst the slew of legendary Canadians, and remains the sole prime minister to be buried in our fair city.
