At 398 acres High Park is the largest park within Toronto. It features a large area of natural parkland including a large pond, beautifully landscaped gardens, an outdoor pool (seasonal), a children's adventure playground, sports and cultural facilities and even a zoo.
There are multiple paved and unpaved trails throughout the park. The unpaved trails are restricted to walkers and hikers, while the paved trails are shared with cyclists.
The parks geography is hilly with a couple of ravines running from north to south through the park.
Grenadier Pond, at the western boundary of the park is home to numerous species of birds as well as marsh wildlife. There is a beautiful landscaped garden along the hillside east of the pond. Grenadier Cafe located in the centre of the park will take care of the munchies while you explore the park.
Located west of Downtown Toronto, High Park is easily accessed from High Park Station on the Bloor-Danforth Subway Line. For more information see the Official Website: High Park Toronto.

There is nothing else like beautiful High Park. It is timeless. Thankfully, the City has recently again permitted ice skating on Grenadier Pond, pending safe conditions. But...there hasn't been a City boat rental on the Pond in almost 30 years! We need to get that back: paddle boats, canoes, kayaks. Getting out onto the Pond for a paddle was one of the best things about High Park up to the end of the 80s. The zoo is another favorite place to stroll. Love this park!

This is a lovely area of Toronto. This very large park is a nice reprieve from the city. There are recreational activities, off leash areas for dogs, kids activities and plenty of scenic walking trails. My kids and I used to eat at the little cafe in the middle of the park. It was a great spot with a very reasonable breakfast that was tasty. Also, the park is located near the Lakeshore West area and Bloor West. Both are nice areas of Toronto to explore as well.

Beautiful park! Many trails to explore as well paths for running! Has a mini zoo and cafes located within the park. The swimming pool is perfect for summer days and large open fields to just relax! During the spring when the Cherry trees bloom the park becomes a tourist site as well as during the fall when leaves turn, giving the park a gorgeous watm feeling. Perfect place for wedding photos or photo shoots in general. Highly recommend taking a first date through this park!

VERY large park. Really surprising for an urban area. Tons of green space, sprawling forest. Nice playground for kids, plus its own zoo. Water park in the summer, skating rink in the winter. Has a small restaurant if you get hungry. Also has community gardens, especially great for people living in nearby condos.

Amazing park!!! The restaurant inside the park has great food and great staff. Has a good place for your dog to run around. The zoo is a great place to take your kids. there is also a playground for your kids to play but its really popular. I had my last birthday here, me and my friends played soccer and had an amazing time!!!
