High Park

Processed with VSCO with c1 preset

I was speaking to a friend of mine recently and we were kind of going over all the places that I haven’t seen yet in Toronto. I have lived in Toronto for the past six years and still have so much to explore! I had always heard great things about High Park which is located off Bloor Street West and Parkside Drive, but I had never visited until a this week. It was an amazing experience. High Park is a great place for all ages and I feel like everyone can find that one thing they really appreciate and bring it with them to High Park and have a great time.

You can set up a picnic by the pond, visit the very minimal zoo, or go around the entire park on your bike. The possibilities are only limited to your imagination.

I got lucky because the friend I went with had an amazing camera, so I found myself taking pictures of the place. Here are some photographs that I love from my High Park visit.

What’s your favourite place in Toronto? Comment below, maybe I haven’t been there and I will go soon!

These Bison were absolutely gigantic. They seem peaceful right now because I believe they were having their mid-day nap, but they are massive and very intimidating. They have two layers of bone and survived the Ice Age. Well, if I had two layers of bone, I might have survived the Ice Age too!

Emu are the second largest birds after the Ostrich. This one was so absolutely close to the fence, not caring about the human standing in front of him/her taking pictures. It looked right at me!

Lastly, the Llama! Apparently, if you put too much weight on a llama, it will refuse to move. Sounds like me every day.

We thought we would find an amazing view at the end of these stairs, but we became super isolated in a really weird area and climbed for no real reward.

Anything this pretty needs to be Canadianized!

They said it was a pond, but it felt more like a part of the lake.

  1. And apparently they have a really nice fountain. They were just not working when we were there…perhaps some BOYS fell into them and caused them to stop working 😮
