went to high park specifically to see the cherry blossoms, it was a perfect day. Even though there were a ton of people, it still had a very calming atmosphere. Worth a see. It only once a year at the beginning of spring.

If you have the time, take a stroll or rent a bike and explore this beautiful park. Its very serene and picturesque, great to get out of the hustle and bustle of the city and enjoy some nature. Perfet for a picnic!

I always go to High Park to chill and relax, walk around and meet other people. My children love the zoo and it's free. After a few hours walk we have a sit down brunch or dinner or even a ice cream. We love it there.

Beautiful park. We tried to see the cherry blossoms. The parking is horrible. I suggest transit. For us its a lonnnng way to take transit but the parking took a while to find. There is a great playground inside the east section which my kids really enjoyed. Many options for great photos..

As a bit of a history buff, I was interested to learn that High Park exists such as it does largely through the private donation of a local landowner over 100 years ago. The park facilities are modern and sparse, the landscape is breathtaking with several ponds within the park, and lots of paved running and walking trails. This was... More

We visited this park on our first day in Toronto as the reviews on Trip Advisor were so good and made it sound amazing. What a hell hole. This is by far and away the dirtiest and most boring park I have ever visited. It was absolutely jammed up with people. You could not move. It was a weekend in... More

We were there in the early morning; went to the Grenadier restaurant for breakfast, and planned on hiking around the park before the 4 hour drive home. Worked out great. We had no trouble finding parking at 7:30/8:00 am; and we just started to meander on the many walking paths. Park has lots of good signage and many different areas... More

Large Park and a great walk, gardens, animal petting areas and of course my favourite cheeky friendly squirrels and chipmunks. Plenty of restrooms as you wander around, food huts to grab a drink or icecream.

It's a good feeling that you can relax in a nice peaceful place within the city. The view is good especially near the lake. You also have options of biking, trekking or just plainly relaxing in the upper part near the maple leaf logo. Overall, its a fun relaxing day without spending much.

My friends and I went for a bike ride round High Park while the Cherry Blossoms were blooming and it was a beautiful sight to behold. High Park also offers an off leash area from dogs. The diner servers all-day breakfast, which I appreciate. Everyone should visit High Park whether the Cherry Blossoms are in season or not.
