Continue west along Front, past the CBC at No. 250, noting the Glenn Gould sculpture, in memory of the eccentric pianist. You’ll soon come to SkyDome, and The Audience , Michael Snow’s larger-than-life fans.

It’s five minutes to the lake and, just west on Queens Quay, Toronto Music Garden, in bloom spring to fall.
