An absolutely gorgeous and sizable park with a nice pond view and a zoo inside. Good for families, couples, and the pensive soul that wants to cozy up to a nice book or just to enjoy nature alone. It has been my consistent choice of a weekend getaway for many years now, and I will definitely miss it if I one day move away from the area. Highly recommended nature area!

Beautiful large, spacious park just out of the city center! You can take subway, bus or drive there with free parking in the park although parking spaces are very limited in the summer. There is a small zoo for children and many green spaces and ponds. In the spring is especially pretty because the cherry blossoms will bloom and it looks so great!

Beautiful park close to the city. Nice trails and quiet places to get away from the hustle bustle. Nice flowers during summer. You will love the cherry blossoms in the spring. Easily accessible from the Lakeshore road or Bloor street. There are few parking spots.

High Park is the perfect place for a quick family outing and a great picnic. Carry your own food if you aren't a fan of restaurant menus and be sure to pack your belongings in a way that you can carry them around conveniently. Children have a lot to.lool forward to be it the ice cream shops,the Zoo, the Toy Train,to name a few. If you enjoy greenery and long walks, this is the place to visit. I recommend going here in summers if you want to spot different species of insects/birds. A place to rejuvenate your senses from the hustle and bustle of city life.
