love the surroundings, wonderful place to explore and enjoy with family and friends to stroll, chat, and to simply enjoy the place, maybe for photo shoots as well, etc.

High Park is one of my favorate although I decide not to go in Cherry blossom season. The trails are good, especially for people with dogs. I usually take TTC there as it's sometimes hard to find parking spot. The park is huge, I never finished it within a morning or afternoon. The pond, so good when it's spring or... More

High Park was a great way to spend a sunny Saturday in Toronto! My partner and I were looking to for some nature to relax in, and were pleasantly surprised by how big and well taken care of High Park is. There are large ponds, plenty of trees and benches, and enough open space that it wasn't over crowded when... More

This is a huge park with a long nature trail, a mini zoo, a castle and a mini children's playground. We took a train ride in the park to see various parts with hop on and hop off options. All are free except the train ride which is very cheap - $3.50 for children and $4.50 for adults. The restaurant... More

We stayed at a nice bed and breakfast near High Park. Two adults, two teenagers. Park was fun for everyone. Lots of activities. Saw a cute skunk. The zoo was a nice surprise. There is a baby Caribou there that likes to honk at people. Wanted to go see Shakespeare in the park. The kids were not as enthused.

Beautiful place to visit to have fun with children or to admire the colors and nature. Nice walking trails, playgrounds and opportunities to burn some calories.

Fantastic huge park with lots of hills (great for us walkers!). Train is very expensive but worth 1 ride. The Park for the kids is the best feature and they love it!!!

We were only in Toronto for the weekend so we didn't get to spend as much time at this park as we would have liked to. It is simply beautiful! There is so much to do in so many places. It was very busy and we loved seeing groups of all ages and ethnicity enjoying their day. We wanted to... More

My husband and I visited High Park on the weekend and loved it. The park is huge and there is lots of different places to see. If you have kids with you, they will love the play structure that was built by Mike Holmes and his amazing crew. There is also a little zoo with some cool animals (emu, peacock,... More
