Polystichum polyblepharum, Japanese lace fern or tassel fern, in the wood fern family Dryopteridaceae, has been mentioned in a few threads now, two quite recent. I am posting this because I am still awed by its tidy architecture, but also as a comparison to another of the same genus. On this one, the fronds are very stiff and tough-looking and the pinnae are shiny. Quite nearby, both of these in Morton Park across from English Bay, is Polystichum setiferum, soft shield fern, with a similar frond and pinnae arrangement, soft and so much more delicate, in spite of the "seti" part of its name coming from the Latin word for bristles. There are several cultivars: 'Herrenhausen' , 'Bevis', 'Pulcherrimum Bevis' or 'Proliferum', which I cannot distinguish, except that one of them is supposed to be 3-pinnate, but I can't remember which, and I don't trust the names given on the internet photos anyway. Wikipedia says the pinnae are opposite; I say they're alternate, an arrangement that I find curious and appealing.
