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 had a lovely 6.5km walk ... the leaves on the trees are changing and were gorgeous to see.
I took the Queen streetcar and got off at Colborne Lodge Drive and headed north along Grenadier Pond.

|This kid was popular!|
I veered up the path towards Bloor Street W.
