  • This is one of Toronto's biggest parks and one of my favourites. This park is huge and expands more than 10km. It has bicycle trails, all kind of sport fields and has its own mini zoo. river run through the park, there are many ducks everywhere and many other friendly animals. This park is very safe at any time 24hrs. as there people around all the time. Simply amazing park.
  • High park is one of my favorite places in Toronto. There is easily enough to fill up a whole day here especially with a family. Pool, splash pad, playgrounds, soccer, zoos, trails, train ride and restaurant...Loads of stuff to do. The zoo is a small area with some local animals but also includes emus and capybaras. The playground is near by and is unique in having designs supplied by kids and built by Mike Holmes of TV fame. Loads of green space to play sports and fun trails to walk your dog in. Main problem is definitely parking. The parking lot is very small for such a big attraction so you should definitely take the subway or bus. If you want to take the family out on a day trip, I highly recommend it. You really can't go wrong with a visit to High Park as there really is something for everyone.
  • Multiple playgrounds. A zoo. A pond. Good facilities. What more could you want in an urban park? Busy on summer weekends, yes, but again great stuff in the middle of a city so of course.
  • The go-to park inToronto's west-end. Has it all: hiking trails; a fishing pond; a children's playground and castle; a petting zoo; and a number of places to grab some food or play sports. Fun for the whole family. Gets very busy in the spring when the cherry blossoms are in bloom, or in the fall when the leaves turn colour. Don't rely on parking as it can become scarce when the park is busy.
  • What a beautiful park! Check out the zoo and get off the paved trails for the best experience. Everyone had a favorite spot, go find yours!
