The Grange

317 Dundas St W, Toronto, Ontario, M5T 1G4

The Basics

Situated in the lush, 4.9-acre (2-hectare) Grange Park, is part of the National Historic Sites Alliance for Ontario, and one of the oldest buildings in the city. Travelers typically pair a stop at this early 19th building with a visit to the Art Gallery of Ontario (AGO). The inside of the Grange, which houses the Norma Ridley Members Lounge, is only open to AGO members, but fortunately, an annual membership only costs slightly more than a single-day admission.
