Are you ready for some outdoor fun? Luckily, Toronto is filled to the brim with green spaces for you to visit. Stretch your legs, get some fresh air, and take in the beauty of nature at these outstanding Toronto parks.  

 

Toronto Island Park

Hop on a ferry and experience over 600 acres of natural beauty on the Toronto Islands. This park, which stretches across a group of 15 islands, will not only help you forget about any stress you’re feeling at the moment, but it will also give you a spectacular view of the Toronto skyline. Explore the beaches, check out the trails, and enjoy the Franklin Children’s Garden as you socially distance.

 

High Park

This list wouldn’t be complete without mentioning High Park. As the largest public park in the city, this option has a number of hiking trails, sports fields, playgrounds, and more. You can take a stroll by the lake, enjoy the Cherry Blossoms if it’s the right time of year, or simply sit and have a picnic.

 

Rouge Park

Just outside of the city limits lies Rouge Park, a well-kept secret. This green space feels far away from the hustle and bustle of downtown Toronto, making it a peaceful getaway for city dwellers. It has the opportunity for a number of outdoor pursuits, whether you’re looking to head out on a hike or simply want to swim in the lake.

 

Here at INFINITI Downtown, we love taking part in Toronto’s bountiful outdoor offerings — and we encourage you to do the same!
