High Park is easily one of the true gems of Toronto with its large green spaces, forests, zoo, restaurants, outdoor pool, bike trails, confectionaries and ponds. I love spending time in this part of the city.

The best greenspace in Toronto. Wonderful landscape and beautiful trees. If you are looking to take a relaxing stroll through a beautiful park away from the concrete jungle of the city, then visit High Park. The condominium across from it with the modern art at the front compliments the park nicely.

Coming from a small town, High Park has been a saving grace since moving to the big city. I love parking myself under a tree for an entire afternoon with a picnic and a good book. It's loved by both locals and tourists. Stay away during the cherry blossom season if you don't like large crowds of people! Also, the... More

The park is easily reachable by public transportation from downtown Toronto. There is not much to do but the walk is fantastic. There are pronounced elevation changes so you have to be in good shape to walk around the whole park.

This is a place with a very interesting collection of animals. With a good weather, this will make a lot of very good photos. Photographers who love landscape and nature must not miss this place!

Went to see Shakespeare in the park with friends. The amphitheater was full and the weather was ideal. Had light picnic supper will the show was going on. You can make a voluntary donation to support the cause. Great performance with a contemporary spin yet holding true to the classic delivery. Take a blanket to spread and a cushion to... 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.
