High Park is a municipal park in Toronto, Ontario. It 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 a 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 entirely within the city.
I entered from Colbourne Lodge Drive and walked through the zoo to get to Bloor Street W.
|This person had the right idea!|
There's a path I like on the west end of the park from Bloor Street W that leads to Grenadier Pond and I headed down it.
Then I walked along the Pond.
|This fella caught a small fish while I was there|
I ended up back where I started a couple hours later!
