Amazing park near public transport. There are many interesting things to see but I liked to most walking by the lake and also Shakespeare Theater with free admission (in fact you are supposed to pay what you think is fair price. I was here several times and it was pleasure to run away from big city to this beautiful place for rest and relaxation. And I will be coming here again when back in Toronto.

High Park is to Toronto as Central Park is to New York; it’s a defining landmark for the City of Toronto. It has hockey rinks, baseball diamonds, picnic areas, space for Yoga retreats, and much more. It’s also a very popular place for joggers, cyclists, photographers, and last but not least, nature lovers. It’s a great place to find solace, to take a walk with your lover, to spend some family time, and to hang out with friends. There’s usually plenty of free parking available, and it’s easily accessible by public transit. High Park is perhaps most popular for its cherry blossoms in spring, and for its fall colours. Otherwise, it remains a vast and pleasant park for all Torontonians.

Imagine walking with the love of your life, cup of warm tea in hand, and surrounded by birds and nature. This place is where you come to get away from the hustle and bustle of the city and escape for a short period. A place to recharge. A place to reflect. I'm looking forward to the spring when I can jog through the trails. Also a good park for dog walking/running.

Beautiful. In the heart of downtown Toronto. Spread over 150+ acres. Walkable from High park subway station. Best place for a picnic in the city. Fall colors were amazing. Family friendly. Must visit in the fall

I love this place! This park has everything you can imagine - a cafe, cute bridges, ponds, and amazing spots for photography. I take all my clients here that want photos taken in the forest and it is extra special in the fall. This park is so easy to navigate and you can even rent out areas for picnics/parties as well. They even have a zoo! This is great for children's birthday parties! This park is very well maintained, and I would recommend going to anyone! Such a great place to visit!
