I absolutely love this park. It's a large park with tall wide trees and unleashed areas for dogs to run free. Long wide paths to walk, jog, and bike ride. There's a sports area as well as a performance stage for entertainment. You'll see squirrels and cute chipmunks running around. There's also a little zoo on the grounds, and it's gorgeous in the fall.

Like the zoo’s in between and lovely garden. Massive dog park on and off. Beautiful place and view. The hawk view point actually had a huge hawk sitting at the point on a bench. Fitting!

A beautiful place to walk and enjoy nature. On spring you must go there to see the cherry trees, on fall to admire the change colours of the trees. Huge park, with zoo, parking lot and a great place to watch the sunset as well.

We went to the high park to enjoy fall colors. It started drizzling which added more flavour. Will be visiting again in spring to welcome the cherry blossoms. Lovely place to hang out with friends and family.

High Park Toronto is a gem in the heart of the city, offering a delightful blend of trails, serene lakes, and beautifully manicured gardens. It's the perfect urban escape for an evening walk, surrounded by lush green trees that create an oasis of calm. The park exudes good vibes, making it a favorite among locals and visitors alike. Plus, its convenience, located just 900 meters from Bloor Go station, adds to its accessibility, making it a must-visit destination for nature and tranquility seekers.
