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.

A lovely and huge park suitable for any kind of outing. I would recommend parking outside the park if you don't have too much to carry, just because there's always crazy traffic inside. Public washrooms are abundant (but currently under construction so they've put up portable stalls instead).

It's a great place to hang out and spend an afternoon. I love bringing a blanket and a book to spend a few hours reading under a tree. It's peaceful and beautiful. The parking lot can get really packed with cars lined up waiting to get in. I would suggest not driving to the park or just parking on a side street close by.

Cannot say enough good things about this Toronto slice of heaven. Check out Grenadier restaurant for some tasty food and peaceful scenery. Their fries are amazing and if you get a patio seat, you'll never want to leave. Then take a walk on the off leash trail, through the park, and past the castle playground. Or head west to the pond and gardens. And don't miss the Sakura which bloom every spring!

Neighbourhood gem. Lots of outdoor space including paved pathways and dirt trails for walking, running and biking. A bit quirky with the zoo. Overall love spending time here but the facilities could use an overhaul and modernization, especially washrooms and covered picnic areas. Also it feels like the washrooms (which are embarrassingly in decay) are constantly closed including during warmer months. Still, HP is one of my favourite features of the neighbourhood.

The High Park is very a large, comfortable and fun place to go for all ages. The park is always surrounded with interesting and pleasing nature. The openness of the area is very appealing. The many large trees all around protect the freshness and positive feeling of the park. It is always clean and lovable for all visitors. There are many roads, areas and pathways for all to use. Anyone can drive through, walk through, or exercise through any area of the park. The many pathways embrace people into the colourful and enjoyable sight. It has many clear, bright sociable spots where entertaining events may happen at any time. And through the south end of the park there are many pathways which combine themselves to the Lake Shore and Lake Ontario. That is also very pleasurable. The most positive attribute about this park is that it is continuously well secured and attended to every day. Anyone will usually feel relaxed and pleased when leaving High Park. I love it.
