The Toronto Sculpture Garden is located at 115 King Street East[1] in a small 80 by 100 foot (25 by 30 m) park directly across the street from Cathedral Church of St. James (Toronto), in Toronto, Canada. It has operated since 1981

Amenities

The main amenity in the Sculpture Garden is a waterfall fountain along the East wall.

The width of the fountain waterfall is equal to the width of the grille, i.e. 1.063 metres (41.9 in).
