We are lucky enough to be staying a short walk away from this wonderful park. It has walking tracks through it, but cars are also able to drive around it. Lots of interesting spaces, such as a children's garden and teaching Kitchen. Locals obviously use it a lot. There were lots of people out walking, jogging, bike riding, visiting the... More

lovely little park in the city. unfortunately do not walk by the dog park area unless you want to smell feces in the air. the restaurant has poor quality food and it is overpriced for what it is. lots of walking areas and various levels of difficulty for cardiovascular.

Great spot to get away from the City - right in the middle of it yet, away from the bustle. I think, they still have the animal pens. Maybe even tag along for one of the walks...

Loved visiting here - the dog loved the dogpark (really fun), and the humans loved the restaurant (the Grendier). There was a couple of ballgames to watch, and a labyrinth to wander around, and beautiful scenery. Well worth a visit.

A beautiful setting with lots to see and do going on. Zoo is free and is a nice touch. Trails, a cafe, wonderful playground to keep the kids happy and a train that goes around the park for a fee with on and off privileges.

This is a great place to spend the day with children. The animals are a nice attraction and the play ground is outstanding. We have been coming to high park for 50 years throughout our lives, and it is always kept beautiful and the same.

Easily accessible from subway stations, this large park is a nice spot to visit year-round. There is always sports / activities in progress and many trails through the wooded areas.

I was expecting well kempt park land, but it was far more natural than expected. The zoo was a bit weird - no staff or anything to be seen, just very high fences everywhere, but a good range of animals. The adventure playground was great - even our 10 month old baby enjoyed it, so would be fab for older... More

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.
