- Bound by Yonge Street, Bayview Avenue, Moore Avenue and Merton Street, this cemetery holds the graves of insulin inventors Frederick Banting and Charles Best, pianist Glenn Gould, and William Lyon Mackenzie King, Canada's longest-serving Prime Minister. Created in 1876, the cemetery was established to help deal with the overflow of the Necropolis, Toronto's first non-sectarian cemetery. It is beautifully landscaped and houses an arboretum with native and non-native species as well as some fine architecture. Its paths are used by many joggers and cyclists as well as those looking for peace and quiet in verdant surroundings.
