Yorkville is mostly known for its fashion, trendy boutiques and celebrity exciting (all good reasons to go there) but it is also home to a Giant famous “Rock”

Approximately one billion years old, “The Rock” weighs 650 tons and represents the roots of an ancient mountain range that has long since eroded. The rock was removed in pieces from the Canadian glacial shield and transported in huge fragments on 20 flatbed trailers to Toronto’s Yorkville Park. As each rock section arrived, it was reassembled to minimize visible joints, although gaps remain which give the stone the look of a tectonic puzzle.
