Toronto beautiful

What is the most beautiful place in Toronto?

Determining the most beautiful place in Toronto in any objective sense is surely a fool's errand, but presumably the very act of toying with the question should serve to remind us just how many pockets of this city are truly gorgeous. Whether it be our many ravines and parks or sweeping views of the skyline — or, in the case of Riverdale Park, both — there are some obvious candidates. But surely there must be some under the radar places, too.

We took the question to our Twitter followers earlier this week and received a wide variety of suggestions. The list of places is varied, but there were a few places that received more widespread support. If I had to pull a top five list out of the responses, it go something like this:

1. Grenadier Pond in High Park (during the cherry blossoms or fall colours)
2. The Scarborough Bluffs
3. The view of the skyline from the Toronto Islands
4. Crothers' Woods (and other Don Valley trails)
5. The Leslie Street Spit

Other places I might add are the view of the city from Polson Pier, the view across city and Riverdale Park from Broadview, and the eastern beaches leading to the R.C. Harris Water Treatment Plant. Surely, however, this working list only scratches the surface. Weigh in with your suggestion for the most beautiful place in Toronto in the comment section.
