Toronto is the largest city in Canada and is known for being very fast-growing, and also one of the most international cities in the world. Although it is crowded, the city is also known for its green spaces and parks. Here are the three most recommended parks to visit.
Perhaps Toronto’s most famous park is also its largest. The multitude of hiking trails along with all of the greenery will make you feel as if you are in the forest and not in Canada’s biggest city. A zoo, playgrounds, off-leash dog area, and sports facilities are just some of the activities you can enjoy in addition to the beautiful trails.
Rougue Park was Canada’s first national urban park and offers even more activities than High Park. Here you can hike, fish, or even camp—only 30 minutes east of the heart of downtown. The park stretches until the shores of Lake Ontario and has national historic sites and a beach for swimming.
Toronto Music Garden
A little different than the first two parks, the Toronto Music Garden is a unique combination of music and nature. It was inspired by the music of Bach and is known as a great place for quiet and self-contemplation in the city. Take a free tour of the park’s design and history, or catch free classical music concerts on specific nights in the summer for a relaxing night out.
