This is one of the best parks in Toronto. The Shakespeare in the Park plays in the summer are especially good. We like the small zoo too as it is a nice size for young children and is free. The play area at the west end of the park is great. Children can spend hours playing in that area. Lot... More

I went with some friends in May to see the cherry blossums and was not disappointed. It was beautiful. A lot of walking but if you get tired there is a little train that putters around filled with old ppl that you can hop on. But the walk is absolutely stunning. Bring your camera and prepare for lots of people... More

This park is perfect to have a picnic or barbecue with friends or for a long walk with your partner. It's nice and you can get there very easy with the green Subway Line.

Walk in the woods and enjoy nature. Love its surroundings and enjoyed walking in the park. It's easily accessible by public transport spent quite sometime there enjoying nature. Will definitely take friends there if they're in for a good jog or walk.

My favourite place in Toronto by far. I walk our dog there daily, every season. The feeling that all the lushness of nature gave me while my wife was ill will forever be remembered. Enjoy all the walks, cycle all the paved paths, have breakfast at the Grenadier,( one of Toronto's greatest bargains), sit on the benches and watch nature.... More

i was staying just close to the park so it was pretty routine of us to visit this place time and again and it was worth the fun too. They have so much inside the park that you won't have a dull moment. lake, views, foliage and even eating options all make it attractive enough to visit

It is the perfect place to escape and relax while in Toronto. The beautiful and scenic views combined with lots of entertainment options makes this place a great visit. The place probably is best for lunch and picnic and the atmosphere and ambiance is pretty relaxed and gives a great opportunity to peace your mind.

A huge park with a free zoo and llamas that can be fed. Lots of tables and space for picnicking and a great cafe serving food and drink. We were there several times with grandson and happened to visit on the afternoon when the Christmas lights were switched on with a countdown and singing and activities for children. A brilliant...

High Park has always been such a beautiful escape, just minutes from the vibrant neighbourhoods of Roncesvalles and Bloor West Village. It is actually quite a large area to cover, offering a lot to do and see on a weekend .... everything from tennis and ball-hockey to tons of running trails throughout. They also offer a wilderness lodge for the... More

Had a good lunch at the Inn, reasonably priced although service was a bit slow. Great walk through the zoo area and the many paths through the trees. Lovely fall day and always enjoyable no matter what time of year. One of the nicer areas of the city to get back to nature for a little while.
