Local nameKew Gardens
LocationOld Toronto, Canada

Kew Gardens is a large park in The Beaches neighbourhood of Toronto, Ontario, Canada. The park stretches from Queen Street East to Lake Ontario at Kew Beach.

The park began as a private 20.7-acre farm owned by Joseph Williams in the 1850s. As more visitors from the city began to visit the lake front he transformed his holdings into a tourist destination. He set up a large park and built several recreation facilities on the site beginning in 1879, naming it after Kew Gardens in London.Williams built a substantial house for himself on the site, which still stands and is home to the park's caretaker.
