Sightseeing

High Park is Toronto's largest park. Perfect for walks, jogging or setting up with a blanket in the shade and having a picnic with friends. There is a little Zoo, a public swimming pool, an outdoor Theatre where you can see Shakespeare plays in the summer. In the Spring one of the most popular events is the blooming of the cherry blossom trees, which is absolutely spectacular.

A really unique spot in Toronto, right across from the Redpath sugar factory. You can see huge ships with sugar being unloaded right in front of the white sand beach with pink umbrellas. It is a very photogenic spot and connects to the waterfront bike trails.

The trail following the Humber River is a perfect spot for long walks or bike rides... It is beautiful in all seasons and can be taken all the way down to the lake, where the gorgeous Humber Bay Bridge is located. We highly recommend this spot for sunset views of the city! In the fall you can see salmon travelling up the river, jumping to impressive heights as they climb the dams close to Old Mill.
