Escape from the bustle of the city in Toronto’s many parks and gardens where you can stroll along lakeside trails or simply relax and wonder at the beautiful displays, particularly during the summer months.
Discover Toronto Botanical Garden, a haven for locals and visitors alike. Themed gardens include Westview Terrace, where you are greeted by a blend of fragrances, the Herb Garden which is made up of circular beds for herbs and healing plants and Nature’s Garden – a representation of two of the habitats found around Toronto.
Claireville Conservation Area provides protection to many species, a largely forested area and High Park is a wilderness of 400 acres with many nature trails, a children’s adventure playground and even a restored cottage dating back to 1837.
