Great spot in the city but you feel like your in nature. Lots of trails, ponds, dog walkers, and great coffee shop and restaurant.

Went here on a cold dark grey November weekday, and it was a nice antidote to the weather. We had an excellent lunch at the Cafe Belong, followed by a stroll around the former quarry area. Did some sketching from the bluff overlooking the brickworks...More

Once a brick factory, the site now consists of heritage buildings showcasing sustainability and green design as well as a 16-hectare public park known as Weston Family Quarry Garden that includes wetlands, hiking trails, and wildflower meadows. Beautiful to explore on a sunny summer or...More

We often come here to get away from the city. We take one or both of the ravine trails (usually Moore Park Ravine) and come in one of the back entrances to the park area. Ponds are nice. It can be quiet during a weekday,...More

East York
East York includes a portion of old, industrial
Toronto. Densely populated but incredibly safe, it
boasts some of the city's earliest gardens and
gardening clubs, attracting green thumbs everywhere.
The tranquility of the Don Valley River area, which is
rich with Toronto's oldest and tallest forests, is
supplemented by the large ensemble of authentic and
refurbished Edwardian homes, giving parts of East York
