  • A good way to spend a day off is reading and relaxing in this park. You will always find a quiet spot. I went with my best friend here to stroll here before too and it was a great time. A good mixture...  more »
  • Very relaxing and beautiful. The maps were a bit difficult to read. I found the tiny zoo very depressing. I found quiet spots to relax and admire the plants, trees, water and city on the other side of...  more »

  • Beautiful place to go in sprint summer and autumn and in winter if you love snow and the cold. Beautiful scenery and lots of trees and parks around. Be ready to walk or if you are tired there are benches kept to rest and spend sometime sitting there. There is a restaurant where you can have food drinks and hot chocolate and fries there is pretty famous although it's a bit expensive. Nice place to spend time with family and loved ones. Also a great place to click lots of pictures. Nature lovers will love this place.
  • High Park Zoo I have been to other parts of the park but just recently visited the 'zoo'. The pens are not kept very well. All of the poor animals are in muddy little enclosures. I know it has been raining but the pens could really have a better design. Since it is so small you would think that more attention and resources could be given to the enclosures. It could be a beautiful little area if some new ideas implemented in the pen designs. How long have they been like this?? I wouldn't really recommend this as a destination. Maybe to walk by since you are already in the area...
  • The High Park is very a large, comfortable and fun place to go for all ages. The park is always surrounded with interesting and pleasing nature. The openness of the area is very appealing. The many large trees all around protect the freshness and positive feeling of the park. It is always clean and lovable for all visitors. There are many roads, areas and pathways for all to use. Anyone can drive through, walk through, or exercise through any area of the park. The many pathways embrace people into the colourful and enjoyable sight. It has many clear, bright sociable spots where entertaining events may happen at any time. And through the south end of the park there are many pathways which combine themselves to the Lake Shore and Lake Ontario. That is also very pleasurable. The most positive attribute about this park is that it is continuously well secured and attended to every day. Anyone will usually feel relaxed and pleased when leaving High Park. I love it.
  • A fantastic park in downtown Toronto. An historic pond, a zoo, walking paths,lots of picnic areas for big and small groups. There's the Grenadier restaurant which has really good food. During the summer there's Shakespeare in the park. Cherry blossoms in the spring. What more could you ask for.
  • Beautiful parks to wander through, and explore. Outdoor sports areas, and a little zoo with about 10 different types of animals, including alpacas and bison. Well maintained gardens, and lots of greenery. Excellent place to go for a bike ride, or to walk the dog in the off-leash park. Skating arenas in the winter are well taken care of.
