  • It's a beautiful park indeed. I grew up spending many summer days exploring this park. It's a great place to go during the summertime if you want to go for a long walk or have a picnic with family/friends. I'm not exactly sure what goes on here during the winter months? Probably not a whole lot. Anyhow, the cherry blossoms during the early spring, and the the fall colors, all make this park quite a special place to experience within the city. It reminds me of the fact that we need more trees lining the streets in Toronto!
  • One of the greatest off leash parks I know of. Big open space and blocked off with fence. Most of the dogs and doggy humans that comes here are very friendly. There is also a little stream and pool that dogs can jump into. You can take your dog off leash hiking as well. Open all year long. There is more to the park then just the dog off leash section. Area to play softball, baseball, basketball. There is an outdoor pool open in warm weather. A lot of green space, and lake view available as well. Great place to come to see nature at its finest. A lot of free parking as well.
  • This park is great all around. So much to do. The cherry blossoms is the most beautiful to see in the spring. Dog runs are fenced and plenty of room for the dogs to run around. New splash pad for the kids to cool down on hot sunny day, Railess train ride, etc, etc. It is a fun park to spend a day walking around or just sitting back relaxing by the pond doing nothing but reading a book, having a picnic or watching the the nature animals having their own day of fun!
  • 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.
  • 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.
