When you discover Ireland Park, unintentionally, and without the least notion of what it is, you can not help but be extremely curious about the place.
Officially open in the summer of 2007, the park is a tribute to the thousands of Irish who fled the Great Famine that devastated the country in 1847.
It is estimated that that year about 38,000 Irish arrived in that area of the coast of Toronto hungry.
Another 1.1 thousand immigrants did not survive the journey and so their names are printed on the rocks brought from Kilkenny, Ireland, specifically to the park.
But the most exciting of the place are even the statues representing the Irish immigrants who managed to end the trip and were saved by the people of Toronto.
