High Park is Toronto's largest public park, offering visitors 400 acres to explore.
There are so many amazing things to do within High Park: tour Colborne Lodge historical museum, experience Shakespeare or a dance performance at the amphitheatre, dine in the 300-seat Grenadier Café, or simply enjoy a beautiful day. There truly is something for everyone here, no matter the season.
High Park is one of the best places in Toronto to escape into nature. When you go exploring the nature trails and the waterfront along Grenadier Pond, it's hard to believe you're still in Toronto. There are picnic spots and benches where you can stop and take in the peace, quiet, and beauty of the area.
From late April to early May, the Cherry Blossoms are in full bloom in High Park. Although the Cherry Blossoms are breathtaking, there are many other gardens to explore. Check out the prominent Maple Leaf Circle (a beautiful garden in the shape of a maple leaf), the Colborne Lodge gardens, Hillside gardens, and many other beautifully-maintained areas. Tours of the park are available from spring to fall on the trackless train - just purchase your tickets directly from train conductor.
There is plenty to keep kids (and kids-at-heart) entertained, including the High Park Zoo, where you can see bison, capybaras, wallabies, yaks, peacocks, and more. The Adventure Park is a kid-designed play structure with rope swings, slides, ladders, and so much more. There are also several sporting fields: public tennis courts, baseball diamonds, and soccer fields. Enjoy the swimming pool in the summer months, and the ice rink when it gets colder. Additionally, there's plenty of green space to enjoy other sports like badminton, rugby, or even toss a frisbee.
High Park is accessible via the city's Light Rail and Subway systems. Our apartments at Yorkville Plaza are a quick subway ride away or you can drive to High Park from our Lake Promenade Community in about 15 minutes.
