Toronto has several popular landmarks that can be visited. A landmark is a prominent or identifying feature of a place or landscape, such as a monument, a building, or a specific location. Toronto’s landmarks range from infrastructure to sports centres as well as natural landmarks to significant buildings. With all of these different landmarks to offer, there is a wealth of different places to visit against the backdrop of Toronto’s landscape.



The Don Valley Parkway (generally referred to as the DVP) is a controlled-access six-lane freeway in Toronto, thus named because it runs through the parklands of the Don River Valley. Hogg's Hollow Bridge is a set of four separate highway bridges that span the Don River Valley and carries the eastbound and westbound traffic of Highway 401, split into collector and express lanes. Other popular landmarks under the category of infrastructure include Toronto’s Union Station and the Pearson International Airport.

Popular landmarks in the form of stadiums include the BMO Field, home of Canada’s national soccer team as well as Toronto FC, Canada’s first major league soccer team. The Air Canada Centre is a multi-purpose arena located in the heart of downtown Toronto like Rogers Centre, which was formerly known as the SkyDome. Originally opened in 1989, it is home to the American League's Toronto Blue Jays and the Canadian Football League's Toronto Argonauts.




CN Tower
Toronto’s beautiful natural landmarks include Edward's Gardens, a former estate that has now been conserved as a botanical garden. Along the shores of Lake Ontario, there is the 740 kilometre series of interconnected trails known as the Water Front Trail. On Toronto’s Water Front are the wave decks, public spaces that vary in shape, articulation, and design to reflect the movement of Lake Ontario. The Toronto Islands are a chain of small islands that comprise the largest urban car-free community in North America and the Scarborough Bluffs also stretch along the shores of Lake Ontario, an escarpment 14 kilometres long that reaches as high as 65 metres.

Toronto’s significant buildings include the famous CN Tower, the tallest free-standing structure in North America, the signature icon of Toronto's skyline, and a symbol of Canada. Black Creek Village is a historic site that is a recreation of life in 19th century Ontario and Casa Loma, a famous castle, is a landmark in uptown Toronto constructed in a Gothic style. The Mount Pleasant Cemetery is one of the oldest and most historically significant cemeteries in Toronto, and two of the oldest churches in the city are St. Michael's Cathedral, established in 1845 and the Cathedral Church of St. James, built in 1849.
