    Brilliant visit another must in Toronto.
    Fabulous exhibits and the conveyor belt under the water was amazing.
    Quite busy with no chance of social distancing but plenty of sanitizer throughout.
    Kids of all ages will love it.

    This was my first time in Toronto and someone recommended going to the islands. The views of the city on a clear day were amazing and the islands themselves are really well kept, even in the off season. My only problem was the lack of any food place being open but I suppose that was to be expected. This is a must see.

    Allen Garden is right in downtown Toronto with very easy access. The conservatory is a beautiful architecture built more than 100 years ago. Inside the conservatory are different types of tropical plants and exotic flowers, don’t know how much effort it takes to grow these tropical plants here in cold Toronto. The conservatory isn’t huge but it’s definitely worth visiting.

    If you have never been it’s worth the trip. Be prepared to walk a lot for approximately 2 hours. If you can look to use the zoomobile. We got there at 3:00pm on a Sunday but the tickets were sold out for the day. There are lots of animals to keep one interested.

    Great place to spend an afternoon with family in any season. It’s very dog friendly, with plenty of trails (must be leashed) and an off leash area. The walks are well maintained and it’s not busy on week days. You may see beavers on the lakes if you are lucky. The weekend markets are lovely, and the cafe Belong has amazing drinks, snacks and delicious (though not cheap) food. Book ahead for brunch at weekends.

    This was a nice change from the pace set by the Big city of Toronto, calm breezes, chirping birds, beautiful flora. I was also quite impressed with how clean it was! This well maintained park isn’t the most exciting or adventurous for some, but it does offer variety and a break from the city, without having to actually leave Toronto.

    It was a really beautiful park, and easy to find parking on a Monday in September. The only downside was the trash lying around that I didn't expect.

    Great getaway from the city ... minutes away from the city. natural space with no dogs allowed. lots of joggers and cyclists. lots of coast for relaxing and fishing. there is some parking available near the trail but its not paved. otherwise you ll need to park further away and walk

    Nice park on the waterfront with seating and areas inspired by a piece of classical music. Great place to just sit and chill

    It's always a nice walk with my dog. The wildlife and lake are great. During fall and winter, we can encounter coyotte. There is always something that catches your eyes there.

    A lovely park, the fountain was very cute with all the dogs, but unfortunately it wasn’t going when we got there, so imagine it would look wonderful.

    Amazing Place for an Evening Stroll

    Guildwood Park and Gardens is a nice little spot for a stroll. With nicely kept walking paths, gardens, sculptures and an outdoor stage give it a try yourself. It is also home to the Guild Inn Estate, where you book events and rent it out as a banquet facility. We spent the day exploring the water and were looking for somewhere to take a nice walk just before we left the area. This park is connected to other parks and trails along the Scarborough Bluffs. It's good for groups, families, couples, bike riding and the solo traveller. If you're ever in the area check it out yourself.
