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.

High park will forever fascinate me. How blessed we are to have such a large green space in the middle of the city. What a great escape, you totally forget your in the city. And grenadier restaurant is one of Toronto's hidden gems. If only there was a way to keep the pervs out of the bushes.. I would not recommend exploring at night...

Always love coming here. This park is the best in the city. There's so many trails to enjoy here, as well as the beautiful scenery. It's very bike and pedestrian friendly. Lots for kids to do and see here. There's a huge and amazing Kid's playground and a zoo.

A beautiful piece of nature in the city. The park is big enough to make you feel like you've gotten away from the big smoke. Fantastic especially just after snowfall. There is a zoo, which not large but may be interesting if you're a tourist. The cafe is average but serves a cheap hot breakfast before 11am weekdays. There is a good off leash dog area that is popular with dog owners.

Beautiful park to visit during sunrise or sunset. Very spacious and green. It's a nice park for picnics, family outings (there is a pool, playground, cafe). There are so many unique hidden gems to hang out and relax within this park. The washrooms are disgusting but you can't really hold high expectations when it comes to public parks.

A fantastic place to explore and enjoy strolling, walking, jogging, roller blading, biking,or even unicycling. The zoo is always a treat to visit, wonderful flower gardens on top of the hill, Grenadier Pond for boating, Colborne Lodge has family activities all year round, especially nice around Christmas. As a kid and teenager, High Park was an integral part of daily & weekly life in West end Toronto. Remember playing baseball at the diamonds by the pool in my youth and playing catch with my future wife by Grenadier Pond in my early 30's. We now take our kids there for special family outings, be it a walk or to laugh & play in the amazing playground with a walk through castle or to visit the animals at the zoo. A lifetime of great memories.
