Green oasis in urban Toronto

This delightful park has a huge off-leash dog area (as well as vast spaces for on-leash dogs), a small zoo, and offers a lovely respite from the city.

I live near High Park, and have been visiting for 5 years. I can't say enough about this place. There are beautiful trails, off leash paths, and a free zoo and playground for the kids! They also built an amazing splash pad near the Bloor entrance which recently opened. Get outdoors with your family and enjoy!

I have been going to High Park for almost 50 years. This park is one of the cities best escapes. You can enjoy playgrounds with the kids, a variety of sports (swimming,fishing, baseball,soccer,tennis, cross country skiing,etc) You also have outdoor theatre in the Summer, great trails to walk or hike, a super dog free leash park and trail, a really...

I live across the park, and I feel so so lucky, it can get crowded on Sundays but it is so big so it can accommodate for it. It's a beautiful park, lots of seating, lots of shaded areas if you don't like being in the sun for too long. Being the biggest park in Toronto, I'd say it is... More

One of my very favourite places to relax in Toronto is High Park. A cute little menagerie, lots of big trees, picnic benches, walking trails, singing birds, playful squirrels and easily accessible by car or TTC. OK, so you may see the odd snake for those who share my phobia, but in some 60 years of coming here only twice... More

Although the pool does get very crowded, the different water levels offer something for everyone, even very small children. If you want your child to go on the waterslide, make sure you see one of the lifeguards first and ensure the conduct the deep water test, Otherwise, you will not be allowed down the slide even if you have waited...

A trip to the park on a Sunday afternoon is a must anytime of the year. It's close to the lake, there are play grounds for the kids, and a petting zoo, and walking trails too!

A great place to wander around with plenty to see and great helpers to assist you with getting around the park. Went on a lovely Sunday and it was far from busy so relaxing way to unwind.

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.
