If you go to Toronto, don't skip the ferry ride to Centre Island. The Island is beautiful with many parks and trails, as well as some small neighborhoods. View across the harbor to Toronto is outstanding. We enjoyed walking along the lake shore on the "boardwalk". Saw what we think was an otter catching fish and eating them on the... More

Nice park outside of the city. There is a small zoo inside this park. It is free. It is easy to get with the TTC or by car. The only 2 thing I have to complain is washroom I used was old, dirty and smelly. Second, is there a pond that is not very clean near the children playground. Overall,... More

Beautiful walks if you avoid the zoo. Saw people feeding animals junk food-no workers anywhere. Very tired looking buildings and animals. Depressing.

A wonderful, large quiet park with great walking trails. It is dog friendly and certainly child friendly with the petting zoo and children's play area. It was subject to some excitement recently on a slow news day when someone dumped a year old caiman into one of the ponds. Some good eating facilities including the Grenadier Cafe which may have...

It's a very spacious park with a mini zoo and cherry blossoms to look at during April-May time. Love this place for a stroll and a little picnic lunch with family and friends! :)

Came here twice with my daughters, though parking was limited, I was able to find a spot. Food at the Red Oak Cafe was pricey but good for the fast food menu. The people were very friendly. Lots of gulls to mind though. Long walk to washroom facilities especially with children. Seems to be really deteriorating though. The washrooms were... More

My brother, who lives in the city, took my family (2adults, and two young kids) and my father here on Sunday afternoon. I was so surprised to see such a big beautiful place right in the middle of the city! We enjoyed walking and discovered the little zoo. And the big castle playground which was a huge excitement for the... More

Huge park in the city. Hash has a lake with swans, ducks and fish. Beautiful grounds and there is a restaurant if you wish to have a coffee or a meal.

Vast, beautiful park great for a family picnic as well as a romantic walk around the small lakes. It could be reached by subway from Yonge - Bloor station or you can go by your own car and park in the parking.
