Spadina Museum Garden

July 29, 2010

This is a look at the Spadina Museum Garden at noon on July 29, 2010.

Spadina Museum

The Spadina Museum sits in the shadow of it's much grander neighbour, Casa Loma. The historic home sits on 5.7 acres, which includes orchard, vineyard, kitchen garden, greenhouse, and garage. The house was constructed shortly after the land's original purchase in 1866.

The house is in the midst of restoration. It will be closed until the fall of 2010. Eventually, it will showcase a 1920's style. This will probably highlight a transitional period between Art Nouveau and Art Deco. When completed it will be the only house museum in Toronto dedicated to a period in the 20th Century.

It is very easy to get to by public transit. I arrived there by taking the subway to the Dupont Station and then walked a block north to Davenport Rd and then climbed the stairs to the Museum. The gardens are open to the public during the day.

You can check the restoration progress of Spadina Museum on their Facebook page.

If you are hosting a garden related event in the GTA and would like it covered in gardentoronto.ca or would like to place an e-poster about it on our Events Calendar, just contact me. I am always delighted to promote anything gardening in Toronto.
