The lakeside is one of my favourite places in and around Toronto as it offers tons of activities and attractions like beaches, parks, attractions, ports, food, culture and great walks.
The other walk which makes it hard to believe you are in a big city is the waterfront west of the Humber River with the memorial to the victims of the Air India plane disaster, natural lagoons and picnic spots. .

It’s a small park, but it also provides a nice green space in the middle of the city, and in addition to some grassy berms and garden beds, there’s a nice painting on the flat side of the flatiron building on one...

We had a very enjoyable time just relaxing and strolling through the park and watching the scenery change as we went.
much to look at along the way, many benches to rest on, contemplate the scenery or life, eating and washroom spots along the way ... makes for a grand stroll.

Whether you come from the lake to Queen Street or Queen Street tio the Lakeshore trails you will be embraced by the park, the trees, the bandshell and ball park.
Several cafes/restaurants, but a bit pricey, so it's an idea to take a picnic and definitely carry something to drink with you, particularly in hot weather.
#18 of 117 Nature & Parks in Toronto
The Toronto Islands are an excellent way to get some exercise and enjoy gorgeous views of the city.

The skating is fantastic, an outdoor trail in a figure 8 shape that provides a great chance to get outside while still providing a great ice surface.

I highly recommend this place for exercising, just relax at the shores of the creek or for a picnic.
The park was staffed that afternoon by National Parks employees and they were stationed all around the trails and able to easily give help and directions when needed.

Only downside is that most of the park is quite a way from the parking lot so if you're planning a pic-nic you need to carry your stuff quite a way.
With great views of tall buildings downtown and endless lake, this park, local for me has become one of my favourites.
#27 of 117 Nature & Parks in Toronto
The Beltline as part of a loop that includes the Lower Don trail makes a challenging, but very enjoyable run right from downtown Toronto.
My husband and I enjoyed a lovely walk from Yonge (Davisville) to Allen Road and then walked along Eglington back to Yonge.Drung the last visit we went along the Beltline Trail to the east.
