Maps and Directions
High Park is a large urban park located in the City of Toronto, west of the city core and close to Lake Ontario. It can be reached by public transit and by walking or cycling, or by car.
Please enjoy the park in a responsible manner so it can be enjoyed by others now and for generations to come. The park is used by so many people! Actions that may seem relatively harmless (such as picking flowers, feeding ducks or letting a dog run off-trail) can have serious consequences if they are repeated by many other park visitors. Please remember you are not just one person, but one of many.
The High Park off-leash area is 8.5 acres of open area (Dog Hill) and designated trails. It is clearly marked with signs and fencing and is intended for all park users, not just dog owners.
Conscientious anglers can help maintain a balanced population at Grenadier Pond by following sport fishing regulations and learning how to properly catch and release fish.
Tours, Talks and Workshops
A variety of walking tours, hikes, talks and workshops are offered in High Park throughout the year.
