Queen's Park is technically owned by U of T.  Leased to the Ontario
Government for 999 years, it expires in 2858.

Sign outside the ROM (Royal Ontario Museum).

Lots of entertainment for both adults and kids.  Unfortunately, looking at my pics I didn't get an overview of the amusement park aspect of the celebration: kid entertainers, inflatable bouncers, arcade games, amusement rides etc.
