Rock of the Matterhorn

In the shadow of an iconic Toronto landmark, the 1,000-pound “Rock of the Matterhorn” sits alone and almost forgotten. You have to bend down to read the plaque alongside the craggy, egg-shaped piece of rock.

The rock was presented to the city in celebration of the “Salute to Switzerland,” an event held at the CN Tower in May 1981. It measures just over three feet tall, 33 inches wide and 15 inches thick, and is encased in an iron frame.
