High Park, Toronto, ON

After the tour of Colborne Lodge, I headed through High Park so I could take my favourite path through the park.  I lived in the 'hood from 1996 to 2001 and had spent a lot of time walking through the park.  I don't get there as often as I'd like.

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.

There were so many nice flowers along the way!

I walked through the park to Bloor Street W and High Park Avenue.

I headed west to take a path which leads to and then along Grenadier Pond.

Heading south
Grenadier Pond
Just a kitty out for a stroll
People were fishing
This family had just caught a small fish
Here comes the train!

It was such a nice walk!
