The easiest way to visit highpark is to go to highpark station. it is right in front of the subway station. It is very huge. I think may is perfect to go, because it is the cherryblossom season. It also has some hiking trail and huge pond with swans. Unfortunately, the washroom is very dirty. Worst ever, so if you... More

Really not that outstanding as a landmark park in a city the size of Toronto. The scenery, layout, or amenities paled in comparison to Stanley Park in Vancouver, for example.

Taking a casual stroll in High Park is extremely relaxing, and you get to see lots of great scenes, come closer to nature -- it's like a whole new world. Picnics on the park are also nice, with friends and family, and biking on the trail is also refreshing, and you get some exercise!

High Park is an amazing place with lots of activities such as: tennis court, fitness, cycling, soccer, picnics, play area for kids and other pleasant things. Do not forget to visit the Hillside Garden and stop for a coffee at the Grenadier Restaurant.

The park is very nice but not well maintained as we found pieces of broken glass in the grass. We had a picnic there and there were too many bees. My husband got stung by a bee. Not enough picnic tables.

It is a wonderful day in the park when you can stroll through and enjoy the garden, the zoo and the kids playground. Grenadier Pond is nice and tranquil and you can skate on it in the winter.

beautiful Park in the west end of toronto. A major hot spot to view the cherry blossoms, excellent hiking trails with workout courses. Definitely worth checking out and exploring for yourself

High park is a must see, especially during Cherry Blossom season. There is a great petting zoo here to entertain the kids and basically everyone. Great trails for hike, and plenty of off leash areas for the dog owners. There is also seasonal shakespeare in high park, where they take famous plays and bring them to life in a vibrant... More

Staying in West End

Neighborhood Profile
West End
The go-to area for new business start-ups, the spry and creative persona of the West End thrives along its streets. Its independent boutiques, galleries, restaurants, and shops offer brands that can't be found elsewhere. Buildings with ground floor consumer spaces sport up-top artist's lofts, and the West End attracts artists, designers, and fashion industry professionals to its living quarters. It is in the cross-hairs of gentrification, but still resisting it with ironic relish. Hot deals can still be found here on furniture and knick-knacks,. Its call to culinary glory is in its well-priced homemade Polish food, hosting Toronto's go-to spots for hot pierogis and cold borscht. High Park, the largest green space in the city, is a place for dreamers and poets to wander and rest, not to mention a number of energetic actors staging outdoor plays in the summertime.
