This is a beautiful place to go for a walk, picnic, or to see the cherry blossoms in the spring. The only negative is the zoo is not the greatest... but they have a zoo so should I really complain?! A must-visit for sure.

This used to be such a beautiful park, offering a peaceful getaway within the city. However, lately, it has become over-run with people, many of whom seem to think it is acceptable to chuck one's food wrappers on the ground for someone else to tidy...More

If you are looking for a great way to get away from the city without leaving Toronto ... get to High Park and check out the Maple Leaf garden and the carved trees!

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

There are a few but not many yet probably due to long warm summer and still hasn't gotten too cold. I live across from Park so I go by it everyday.

I agree, Liquidsilver, there are lots of options. Would you prefer to live in an apartment that's a floor in a house, or in a bigger building? Do you care if the building has facilities such as a work out room? Do you need parking? (in some areas parking is nearly impossible, and in some condo buildings it can add $200 a month to your cost).
Tulip Festival - where do you park (5 Replies)
I am going to the Ottawa Tulip Festival for the first time next week. Can anyone tell me what I can expect. Where is the place to park to be in the centre of places? Is it best to take the shuttle bus and get on and off. We are walkers so what can i expect for distances between showcases of tulips? For an example is the showcase like High Park or Edwards Gardents in Toronto where you just walk all around the park area or is there quite a distance between venues? Thanks for any advice.

Hello! The two main venues, Major's Hill park which is downtown and Commissioner's Park at Dow's Lake are pretty far apart - it'd probably take several hours to walk from one to another, and it wouldn't be a particularly nice walk either, so I would definitely drive or take the shuttle. For Major's Hill park downtown I would park at the underground parkade at the World Exchange Centre (entrance off Queen St. between Metcalfe and O'Connor and at Metcalfe and Albert) which is free on weekends...More
