The city is also home to a wide variety of festivals and production houses for domestic and foreign film and television. Annually, Toronto hosts of one of the most famous Gay Prides Festivals in the world; from mid-July to early August, the Caribana Festival takes place and is considered one of North America’s largest street festivals.

Sports and Exercise

Toronto has everything to keep you occupied, if you are into inline skating, jogging, biking or just looking for a nice walk by the lake. Toronto is at the heart of the 350 km (219 miles) Lake Ontario Waterfront trail.

The Toronto stretch, known as the Martin Goodman trail, provides either a leisurely, or intense trek, from the Eastern Beaches to the Western Beaches. Most of the Toronto portion of the path is uninterrupted and well-marked, making it perfect and safe for cycling, inline skating, walking, or jogging.

Other city parks close to the downtown core are:

A downloadable map of all city paths and cycling routes is available from the City of Toronto website.

Just across the water lies Centre Island a great place to visit for the day. It's a short and inexpensive ferry ride to experience the other side of Toronto with its beautiful parks, trails, and beaches.

Don't forget your clubs! Toronto is also very close to many golf courses. Use this tool to help locate the perfect course for you.
