We've been visiting High Park for the last 4 years or so and it's so big that every time we go, we find new areas that we haven't explored yet! Every time we feel like decompressing from living in the big city, this is where we go. I even started volunteering there recently. It's a lovely place, especially during the... More

High Park is similar to Hyde Park in London. Sculptured areas compete with wild areas to create an oasis of calm in a busy city. Plenty of places to play for the kids and many trails for those who like walking or running. This is a very large park and you should be careful that you don't get lost. Grenadier... More

we hadnt been to High Park in years, but decided it was time to revisit. We took two of our grandchildren, ages 4 and 6. We were challenged to find parking, but we did. The kids played in the adventure playground for more than an hour, having fun on all the different activities. We took the train ride around the... More

Off leash park for dogs contains wonderful trails and water to drink. Peaceful location in the city. Weekends are busy in the day for parking.

High Park is fantastic! Lots of great trails to walk/hike and a great off-leash area for dogs. There's an outdoor pool, Tennis Courts and a really nice cafe in the middle of the park. Grenadier Pond is lovely...great place to watch the birds and all kinds of wild life...and the zoo! The Capybara's have returned to their pens! The Cherry... More

High Park is a true gem, right in the heart of Toronto's West side. Entrance to the park is free and there are countless things to do and see. You can eat at the Grenadier restaurant there, tour the lovely gardens, go for a swim, visit the zoo, play tennis, play in the kids parks, ride your bike, or just... More

Hard to believe that there is such big park in Toronto. If you want just to relax do go there and there are so much activities available or just stroll by the lakes and in the wood. But the best thing for me was Shakespeare in the High Park that is simply must.

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.
