About High Park

Toronto's favorite park, this place is a wonderful place to enjoy a picnic with family or friends. It is located on Grenadier Pond. During spring time, roam around the lanes of cherry blossoms that were donated to this park by the Japanese Ambassador in 1959. There's also a theatrical stage, a small children's zoo, and the Colborne Lodge built in 1836 by the Howard family, who donated much of High Park to the city in 1873. High Park spans 161 hectares (400 acres), and is a mixed recreational and natural park, with sporting facilities, cultural facilities, educational facilities, gardens, playgrounds and a zoo. One-third of the park remains in the natural state with a rare oak savannah ecology. High Park was opened to the public in 1876 and is based on a bequest of land from John George Howard to the City of Toronto. It is the largest park within the city. (Rouge Park is the city's largest park, but the park extends into Markham, Ontario.) High Park is located to the west of downtown, north of Humber Bay. It stretches south from Bloor Street West to The Queensway, just north of Lake Ontario. It is bounded on the west by Ellis Park Road and Grenadier Pond and on the east by Parkside Drive
