  • I've visited High Park a few times over the years and as a center-piece 'main city park' it's really, really lacking. During a visit last summer there was literally feces on the floor of the one...  more »

  • Seriously!!!! Probably the most beautiful park in Toronto. High park is set in the fabulous rolling Hills and a central Toronto area. Not only is it always lush and beautiful (even in the winter) it's absolutely refreshing. The nice thing about high park is that most of the time you can go off when the trails yourself and you don't have to stay on a beaten path. watch out for the high park cherry blossoms when they come however be careful this attraction brings pretty much every single person in Toronto into the park! Try to pick a day that's not as busy as a Saturday or Sunday to view this special event. a side note is that my husband says that a lot of Pokemon come up in this area and he's found several people to do raids against with. We've both even done raids together with others in this park. Everyone here in this area seems pretty sweet. (If your into games). There are several beautiful landmarks as well as a great history lesson in this park. Also the squirrels are extremely friendly oh, did I mention the zoo? also the restaurant however I will leave a separate post based on the restaurant ....
  • Wow, what can I say about high park. It hold very special place in my life... something incredible happened here.. Its beautiful. Biggest in Toronto. Lots of activities you can do with family and friends. I like to those ducks. Quack Quack Quack... Quack... Wear sun block and bug spray.. Trails for bike ride,jogging, long romantic walks.. benches to see water and ducks or peaceful sitting away from crowd.. Have lots of fun.. and make memories like we did...
  • Went skating, free skate rink is open all day. Played in the snow with my daughter. Sunned myself against the pool building. Then photographed the winter gardens. I love the exceptional Dawn redwood specimens. Love this place if I'm looking to spend time outdoors.
  • It is a nice park, specially in summer. It becomes an awesome place when cherry blossoms. Thousands of people visit this park to enjoy the beauty of cherry blossoms. Mobile public toilets are available in that time. Overall, lovely park and it gives fresh feeling about nature which attract people.
  • The High park is a natural park in Toronto. If you like to walk, run or just sit and listen to nature, than you will like the High park. It has something for everybody, sport facilities, educational facilities, gardens, zoo, playground or a pool. In spring don't forget the cherry blossoms, you will see hundreds of people in the park taking pictures, but the park has its beauty in summer as well as in fall and winter
