Letter From The Director
TORONTO - A GARDEN WITHIN
Our city is a huge garden of gardens, with rolling hills, rivers, valleys, forests, creeks, marshes and wetlands: all within an urban environment. We're surrounded by green space: with Lake Ontario to the south, the Niagara Escarpment to the west, the Rouge Valley to the east, and the Oak Ridges Moraine to the north.
On a warm summer day, in an evening, or during the weekend, our city gives us almost infinite options: a stroll in a nearby garden, or a short drive to a place you haven't visited before.
When we decided to focus this issue on the gardens around us, we faced a challenge - there are so many to tell you about. Each of them, large and small, has its own unique features, history and attractions. So, if we�ve missed your favourite, tell us about it. Maybe we'll be able to include it in a future edition.
While signing off on this edition, I look forward to getting outside to explore and enjoy the many beautiful gardens in our city.
Oh, and there is just one more thing (Steve Jobs' way saying it)...
