NEWS & SIGHTINGS

LARGE TREE REMOVALS

WILDLIFE IN WINTER

Whether you are skating at Grenadier Pond (in the marked area, when safe to do so) or just taking a walk, please remember that many wildlife species depend on High Park for a safe place to shelter and feed over the winter. Please keep your dog on leash, on trail and off the ice, for the safety of all!
