St. Martin’s garden is an oasis in the community where people can come to play, meditate or pray. Situated below street level, it is a protected and quiet spot with many trees for shade, as well as sunny lawns and colourful beds of perennials. During the summer, Sunday coffee hour in the garden after the 11 am service is a favourite with parishioners.
The garden is maintained by a team of parishioners and with financial support from the Horticultural Society of Parkdale and Toronto.
We are bustling with activities at St. Martin’s. Learn about our parish groups below.

St. Martin’s has been affiliated with the Quiet Garden movement since 1997. The first Quiet Gardens were established in England more than 20 years ago, and the movement has grown into a worldwide network.
Our own Quiet Gardens are facilitated contemplative sessions held in the garden of parishioners. See all of the affiliated Quiet Garden locations.
We are pleased to have the following community groups using our facilities:
