We enjoyed the kids park (a castle like park) and the mini zoo. Also the parks are kept very well, especially around the lake. Finally there a little train which tours around the park which was fun for the kids and more relaxing for parents!

This place is big, and there are a lot of twist and turns that may cause you to miss a few sights - so make sure you look at the map and really see all that high park has to offer. do not go after dusk. this park turns pitch black and it could be dangerous of tourists.

Writing this review for tourists using public transport.This park is conveniently situated very near to a subway station - high park. It is big - with insufficient benches. There is a restaurant and a small zoo and other facilities for other activities. As a tourist most of these, such as cycling or tennis, are impractical unless driving. Lots of large... More

such a huge and varied park - so much to see and do and very well-gardened. we were a large group and found the facilities to be perfect. parking was a bit challenging so if you are attending with individuals with mobility issues, drop them off in your areas first.

For some reason I have not come here in 20yrs. Bad mistake! What a great place to walk through the parks or next to the water or just have a picnic. This is our Central Park! I will be coming back again very soon. Loved this place!

Our visit was brief - but I was impressed with the various activities in just a small fraction of the park space. There is much more to enjoy - another review to follow...

Plenty off space for the kids to run around, outdoor mini zoo that the kids loved. Grounds are very well looked after. Outdoor swimming pool, tennis courts, and climbing frames.

It had been at least 20 years since we had been to High Park and we had a chance recently to spend a few hours walking around. It is starting to show its age in places and it seems that perhaps budget cuts have deferred some maintenance (a restroom we tried to visit was under repair and seemed to have... More
