  • It's an easy, but long walk. Very flat with no gain in elevation at all; not that it is a bad thing, but it's a little boring. However it is a good change from the cityscape of Toronto, a little natur...  more »
  • A great walking, biking trail with different views of downtown and the Islands. No pets allowed and it goes out for kilometres. Great in all seasons for bird watching or just a quiet stroll, bike ride...  more »
  • The Park is located a few minutes from the city centre. The peninsula on which the Park is made artificially. Someone fishes who then rollerblading and biking, and someone just walks. It is very interesting to observe birds.

  • Tommy Thompson Park aka The Leslie Street Spit is a natural gem in the heart of the city. Trails and paths for walkers, cyclists, fishers and bird watchers. Educational information for kids, students and naturists. Great fun to cycle to the lighthouse at the tip of the spit. Enjoy your visit to this park and quickly forget you are in Canada's largest city. There are no concession facilities. Restroom access is seasonal. Limited operating and parking hours. Please check web site before visiting.
  • More commonly known as the "Leslie Spit" - this is a great park. To get here you go all the way south on Leslie St, there is some parking along the road and near park entrance, but best way is on foot or bike. I do lots of long runs through here - it is a good medium distance loop and has great views of the city and lots of wildlife (birds) if you are into photography. A cool bridge and lighthouse are at the end of the park. Keep in mind this park has no dogs/pets policy so unfortunately not a good spot if you are looking for somewhere to walk your pet. I took off one star because the paved surface is in pretty rough shape once you get far into the park so not great for road bikes (mountain bikes would be ok here). In the summer on weekends there is a hot dog cart just outside the park gates that sells pop/water/gatorade too - I have needed it on super hot days!
  • Great conservation area to walk or bike through. I've always wanted to go, and today I took the waterfront trail to get here. There's trails to go bird watching, and a great view of the Toronto skyline. It's out of the way without a car, but well worth it. Park is only open weekdays 4:00 p.m. - 9:00 pm, and weekends & holidays 5:30 a.m. - 9:00 p.m.
  • Not as crowded as the island. Great for *long journey into nature. I like biking unless I have a larger part of the day to spend there. Head north for some grocery stores for snacks and refreshments *For the city
  • Such a great place to go for a long bike ride. The views are spectacular and worth the at times patchy pavement. You really get the opportunity to appreciate a different part of the city here. With a strong focus on conservation and wildlife it's a great place to spend some time. Timing of when the park is open to the public is not necessarily straightforward. Often there will be a closed sign but there will be people everywhere going in and out including staff who are not fussed about it.
