Huge park with lots of places to visit such as a zoo, a lake, a restaurant, a theater, and even a swimming pool. You can take a walk for hours and still haven't finished visiting all areas of the park. One side of the park leads to the lake, just by crossing a road so you can rest and enjoy the beautiful lake as well as its breeze after your long walk in the park. The restaurant "le Grenadier" offers a good variety of delicious food and has a nice big patio. It's very pleasant to eat there during the warm days. High park is also known for its cherry blossom that happens in Spring. Worth a visit for sure. Just make sure you plan to spend at least half a day there.

What a gorgeous place! It was nice and clean, very busy and the kids had a blast. The playground is huge and full of families enjoying time together. We did a lot of walking and there was still more to see but the little ones wanted to go back and see the animals. We had an amazing time and will definitely be going back.

High Park is a huge city park filled with an array of activities for all ages and all species. You will most likely visit more than once; I would pay to visit this place, but it is free (though donations are accepted at points). To name a few there are classic swings and jungle gym for the kids, tennis court, soccer area (football for the rest of the world), swimming pool, ice rink, dog free roaming area, restaurant, and a zoo! Perfect for family walks, romantic strolls, picnics, taking mans best friend to roam freely and meet other dogs. Overall great experience and lovely memories.

Great off leash trails and dog park. There is a nice small zoo which is great for kids. The park has everything. There is even a really good spot for breakfast. Last time we were there they had a bit of a wasp (or bee) problem but they were very accommodating and helped us avoid it as best they could.

Good park for strolling. You can do fishing also here in the lake. Very good children play area has so many swings. It has a small zoo as well where you can see different animals in their natural habitat. It has a nice garden with different species of flowers. Also if you feel hungry there are plenty of options to eat here.
