take the stress out by hugging the trees and breathing some good air, with the city close by. Rolling paths for some good exercise, picnics, and playtime.

There are miles of paths for biking or walking. It does get crowded in certain areas on weekends but it's a huge park and there's generally lots of room for everyone. There are great playgrouds for children, a small free zoo, lots of water to view geese and ducks and numerous areas to set up a picnic. Free to park.... More

A vibrant city park accessible by subway or car. The spring blossoms and fall colours are wonderous. It is pleasant anytime of year with paved paths as well as trails that wander through the hills and woods. The little zoo is a welcome surprise and although many don't approve of zoos, the animals here always seem happy to have visitors.... More

lots of nice scenic gardens and nature paths around a big pond - great for cycling or strolling around. The mini-zoo is great for kids and the old colonial tea houses are very pleasant for relaxing.

This is a brilliant place to escape right in the middle of the city. Walking trails, biking trails, dog park, baseball, soccer, playgrounds, skating, tennis... it has everything. Located right across the street from a subway station too.

High Park is Toronto's largest public park. From wild forests to the Chinese gardens and the famous Japanese cherry trees Hill High Park is the best place ever to rest and enjoy the beauty of nature. People who visit this park admire a walk along the Grenadier Pond on the west side of High Park which will make anyone to... More

I love this place because it is close to downtown Toronto, but so peaceful and pleasant. Whenever I want to clear my mind, I visit here for the small zoo, dog park and the cafe in the middle of the park. The small zoo is definitely my favorite! Most animals are “cattle" kind of animals and nothing spectacular, but relaxing…... More
