A nice get away from the city... Within the city. Big park you can get lost in walking the trail, playing sports or my favorite... Playing with all the dogs in the dog park! They have seasonal Cherry blossom trees which are beautiful. It's worth checking out in my honest opinion.

No matter what season it is, this part really packs a punch. I used to come here when I was a little child and I have enjoyed bringing all of my children here as well. It's really important to do our part and keeping this wonderful Park clean. Super close to West Bloor Village. One of my all time favourite parks, in the world. #localguide

This park is great all around. So much to do. The cherry blossoms is the most beautiful to see in the spring. Dog runs are fenced and plenty of room for the dogs to run around. New splash pad for the kids to cool down on hot sunny day, Railess train ride, etc, etc. It is a fun park to spend a day walking around or just sitting back relaxing by the pond doing nothing but reading a book, having a picnic or watching the the nature animals having their own day of fun!

One of the greatest off leash parks I know of. Big open space and blocked off with fence. Most of the dogs and doggy humans that comes here are very friendly. There is also a little stream and pool that dogs can jump into. You can take your dog off leash hiking as well. Open all year long. There is more to the park then just the dog off leash section. Area to play softball, baseball, basketball. There is an outdoor pool open in warm weather. A lot of green space, and lake view available as well. Great place to come to see nature at its finest. A lot of free parking as well.

It's a beautiful park indeed. I grew up spending many summer days exploring this park. It's a great place to go during the summertime if you want to go for a long walk or have a picnic with family/friends. I'm not exactly sure what goes on here during the winter months? Probably not a whole lot. Anyhow, the cherry blossoms during the early spring, and the the fall colors, all make this park quite a special place to experience within the city. It reminds me of the fact that we need more trees lining the streets in Toronto!
