  • Really nice park, lots of parking which is good since it seems to be very popular and quite busy. Great walking trails with lovely view of downtown Toronto.  more »
  • I had no air to look at the sky, Lake, ducks. It is the typical Canadian landscape. Tea refill by something new especially for those who live in the tropics

  • This park has a wonderful and very large leash free dog park. They also have a much smaller section fenced off for smaller dogs or puppies. The park itself also has a very nice trail you can walk and bbq grills available for use. I've never used the grills but they are very popular in the summer with people showing up quite early to claim one.
  • Best park I have been to in the GTA so far. Love this place and always look forward to going. Super clean, serene, and love the winding trails. Stroller and pet friendly. Be sure to come when you have lots of time to meander. :)
  • Best leash free park EVER! It's massive - 22 acres - with hills, woods, a sand pit, ample parking, a water fountain for the dogs, and new dedicated area for small dogs. People who go there are spoiled and pretty much don't want to go anywhere else.
  • It can get quite busy in the summer time and parking is limited, which is why it’s best to arrive early because by noon time you’ll be scrambling. However, the kids park was newly upgraded and is now covered with AstroTurf and is tons of fun for children of all ages. There’s a great splash pad and the beach path is easily accessible. There’s also lots of room to set up shop to BBQ (you are allowed to bring your own grill). If you’re looking for a fun place to spend the day with family then Jack Darling Park checks off all the boxes.
  • We love this place! Definitely one of the best off-leash parks around. Roscoe definitely approves.
