An Oasis in a big city

A wonderful open area with a small "zoo" - lot of trails and views. Well worth the effort ... and free parking!!!

High Park offers a great time for families. There are a decent length of trail around the park, a zoo and arguably the best playground in Toronto for the kids. You can spend a lazy day here. I wouldn't recommend this for an out of towner unless you had a lot of time or kids. This is more of something... More

Spent a day wandering the park last week end, lots of great trails that are well kept and easy to explore. The little zoo is a cute bonus.

High Park is 20 mins by subway from downtown TO. A tranquil space which suits every city dweller's needs. There are walks, a lake, ducks, cafés, tennis courts, ice rinks, pool etc. it's a haven for the soul with plenty of space that it still does not feel crowded when it's busy. I like to go there to people watch,to... More

High Park is 400 acres of refuge in the heart of Toronto. Beautiful walking and bicycle paths with an abundance of chipmunks. Turn over the occasional rock or log and find a treasure trove of red stripe salamanders. In early spring, you can walk among the cherry trees and see the cherry blossoms. There are more groomed areas for picnics,... More

Love this place! with lots of views and roads to walk around. The beautiful lake with geese, swans and duck, a nice flower field and a small manmade waterfall, perfect place for photography. There is a kids play ground, that looks like a castle and there are tennis courts. Love it.

Heard about this park for years and finally went. Quite beautiful and lots to see. Finding a place to park is a desperate experience.

In spite of really crazy crowds and kids throwing tantrum left right and center, this is really a good restaurant. Food is great, prices not too high and staff are sweet (most of the times - unless you want to prove that you are one of the monkeys that just escaped from the zoo nearby). Service quality is really great... More

No need to go all the way to D.C. or Tokyo to see beautiful cherry blossoms in the Spring! High Park has an avenue of trees by Grenadier Pond worthy of admiration. This is one of the great city parks. Near transportation, lots of parking! Playgrounds, playing fields. Short on 'refreshments', however, but lots of picnic tables for family gatherings.... More

Toronto offers a lot of nice green spaces. High Park is one of my favorite ones. We have gone for breakfast in the park and afterwards gone for a leisurely walk to visit the bison, llamas, peacocks, deer, highland cattle and sheep. The playground is always busy with happy sounding children. There is a lake, nice walkways beautiful trees. Lots... More
