A common misconception about Toronto is it lacks nature and green space. On the contrary, the city is filled with parks, trails, and ravines. Torontonians regularly flock to these places to immerse themselves in the great outdoors. If you want to explore Toronto’s green spaces, here’s are 3 destinations to visit:
‘If you take the subway line 2 all the way to Keele Station, you will arrive at the border of High Park. It’s a 161-hectare space that offers a variety of activities to locals and tourists alike. High Park is home to a zoo, tennis courts, community gardens, the cherry blossom festival, trails, Shakespeare in the Park, and more! If you’re looking for a place to spend an entire day exploring, we highly recommend making the trip to this west end destination.
Bordered by Queen Street West and Dundas Street West, Trinity Bellwoods is the place the cool kids go to hang out. On any given spring, summer or fall day, you will see groups of friends hanging out on blankets, slackliners balancing between trees, and dogs running around in the off-leash area as their owners socialize nearby. If you want to experience the vibe of the city, Trinity Bellwoods is the place to be.
Located on the east end of Toronto is Evergreen Brickworks. It’s an ecological paradise in the Don Valley with a variety of things to do. On Saturdays, it’s home to Toronto’s largest farmers market. If you like hiking, there are plenty of trails to explore.
