FROM THE STREET, THE MAX TANENBAUM SCULPTURE GARDEN IS WELL HIDDEN – BUT IT’S THERE

Between Toronto’s Bridgepoint Hospital and the Don Valley Parkway, you’ll find a large sculpture garden containing 20 works by the deceased Canadian artist WILLIAM LISHMAN. The life-sized sculptures aim to celebrate the human spirit, and they were gifted by the Tauba and Solomon Spiro Foundation.<PHOTO – George Pyron>Residents of the Hospital have a pathway below the sculptures. There are plenty of benches and a forest of trees separating the walking path from the expressway – which can get quite noisy. To get there, cross the Gerrard Street Bridge and turn left on the west side of the Hospital. Straight ahead the Garden will come into view. <PHOTO – Flickr><PHOTO – Diane Walton><PHOTO – George Pyron><PHOTO – FlickRriver><PHOTO – urbantoronto.ca><ABOVE – Bridgepoint Hospital>
