  • Are large massive parks still a thing? I would much rather have a small parkette which is intimately scaled, over a massive park where there is little to do. Even the cherry blossoms here are disappoi...  more »
  • You would have to live in Toronto to visit it all, but even a few hours is enough to get us into the immensity of this green lung in the center of Toronto. It remains not only from the vastness, but from the variety of the landscape. From the well-maintained garden you get to the "natural" forest passing through meadows, streams, lakes and walkways, with areas of free rein for dogs properly marked. It's all a succession of landscapes one more interesting than the other, surrounded by a fauna sometimes unexpectedly sociable and curious.

  • Seriously!!!! Probably the most beautiful park in Toronto. High park is set in the fabulous rolling Hills and a central Toronto area. Not only is it always lush and beautiful (even in the winter) it's absolutely refreshing. The nice thing about high park is that most of the time you can go off when the trails yourself and you don't have to stay on a beaten path. watch out for the high park cherry blossoms when they come however be careful this attraction brings pretty much every single person in Toronto into the park! Try to pick a day that's not as busy as a Saturday or Sunday to view this special event. a side note is that my husband says that a lot of Pokemon come up in this area and he's found several people to do raids against with. We've both even done raids together with others in this park. Everyone here in this area seems pretty sweet. (If your into games). There are several beautiful landmarks as well as a great history lesson in this park. Also the squirrels are extremely friendly oh, did I mention the zoo? also the restaurant however I will leave a separate post based on the restaurant ....
