“A nice locale for a stroll during autumn”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 12, 2012

Whereas it has no outstanding features to make it worthy of a detour, this city park makes a nice, free urban escape. This is especially true in the Fall. Public transit: take the TTC's #506 streetcat tram as far west as it goes. The terminus is just inside the park.

“High Park”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 8, 2012

This park is located in the western part of Toronto and if you want to get there you should take the subway and get off on High Park station. This park is really huge and you can do many things over there. My observations proved that many people prefer jogging or cycling in the park (they have all the infrastructure needed for it). There also many children in the park and they seem to love this place because they can feed gees, ducks, squirrels and other animals over there. Moreover in summertime kids can swim in the open air pool. There is one soccer field, one baseball field and several public tennis courts. If you like sport this place is for you.

“A whole day with 2 kids and 2 tired adults”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 8, 2012

Spent the day here travelling via foot, tram and tree! Ok the 8 year old chose tree transportation and the rest of us enjoyed a day of exploration. This is a park we frequent however, this day had a different feel - as though we were newbies. We parked by Colborne lodge and took a stroll - looong stroll but were not bored even a moment! The tram saved us by whisking us to the park, restaurant and zoo. We were all exhausted at the days end but the tram carried us where we needed to be and with a final nod to whatever ghosts reside at the Lodge we drove peacefully home from a wonderful day at High Park!
