    What a beautiful park in the fall with the trees changing colours. The zoo was so cute, we saw a cababara, peacocks, emus, bisons, goats, lamas, among others. It took us a fair amount of wandering around to find it, there were no signs anywhere! I had heard that police were giving out tickets to bikers, which I thought odd, until we visited the park for the first time and many latex clad individuals raced past us going VERY fast. So many little kids tottering about, I’m surprised there not been more accidents. The bathroom were kinda gross too, but at least they were not locked.

    Very nice and clean community in GTA and Toronto City. There’re lots of underrated and unknown communities in Toronto like this. This is a Russian communities and almost all the Russian communities and supermarkets in Toronto are very clean and sanitized

    Great venue to watch a concert. about 15K capacity and very good sound from all around. You have to get there early to get parking but there is parking at ex grounds just need to walk over the bridge. Beer is incredibly overpriced and food is not good.. other than that.. great place for concerts.

    We mostly do concerts here but the sports venue is good too. Excellent handicap seating and lots of good places to grab food and beverage of choice, When it is full it is really really loud so you might consider ear phones or plugs,
    P:arking is a bit of a challenge so see if there is somewhere ck to park and take a cob over,

    Really enjoyed the ride i got on since it was not too fast for me. I checked the weather and was glad to go on the best weather day. Did get there early and was able to enjoy the experience before the crowds got larger and was glad that i did. Did notice that the cost of even roasted corn was a bit much but did love the mini donuts and pub type foods and drinks, sorry I missed the dog show but hope to catch it next year.

    In the Liberty Grand dome front steps area are multiple food trucks parked every weekend (12-8 Sat-Sun). Choose from Liberty Grill, Gogi meat, Jerk Bro, The Arepa Republic Venezuelan, Buster’s Sea Cove, Beavertail sweets, and Naansense Fusion, plus more. I recommend Alijandro’s Fawaffle Avo Chicken or vegan original cones ($12, 10). Masks can be purchased ($2) and sanitizer is available for eating on the greens, facing the breakwaters on the other side of Lakeshore. Limited outdoor seating means you should arrive 1:00-1:30 to grab a table. Washrooms are available and entrance is free (payments contactless). Vendors do not sell drinks. Beer is available on site separately for sale. Families should bring tetra drinks, and maybe sunscreen. Entrance off Lakeshore is just West of Ontario Place.

    This path have amazing views of the city and the lake. You can walk, jog, use bikes or skates. Bring your dog in his leash and let him socialize with other dogs.

    A staple mall for the west end. Free parking, accessible with necessary stores like a grocery store and Walmart while having a good food court and a good handful of stores. However, it's overall pretty basic. Would definitely recommend Eaton Center or Yorkdale for a more extravagant mall.

    High Park, in the very center of the city, is an oasis where many are gathered citizens in the winter and summer. For everybody at a glance at all times of the year: sports grounds, zoo garden, skating rink, swimming pools, long walkways, children's castle, indoor parts for smooth running of dogs. The peace, thanks to the unspoilt nature, the hilly terrain, the river, and the lake sprinkled with space, can be felt on a concrete or earthy path.

    This park is a rare endowment of a fellow architect and artist of art and nature, John Howard. On the plane, the highest point of this park, is the beautiful, simple and picturesque weekend of John and Jamie Hallard built in 1837 - its name is Colborne Lodge. John Howard was one of the first architects in Toronto, as well as a city engineer and geometer. The house itself is famous for its three chimneys, an unusual architecture, a very functional solution to life in it, as well as an interior that besides artistic values ​​also has innovative - small home appliances for the kitchen. All designed, innovated and handled by Howard is done.
    The house is designed to have three levels. The entry level, the anteroom from which it enters the living room, then the study room, the sewing room, the dining room, the grocery stores and then the three rooms with wardrobe, tools and painting material. The position of the living room is set up to look at Lake Ontario and exit the large veranda. The stairs are descending into the kitchen, which was deliberately built lower than the ground level, because with this inclination, rainwater was collected and water from the lake could be used for drinking, bathing, as well as for the toilet. Otherwise, it was also the first toilet and bathroom in the house in Toronto.
    The house museum is open for visits and on holiday days it is equipped with dishes, food, or decorations depending on the time of the year and holidays. Very nice and magical looks like December, decorated fir, wooden toys and the smell of hot apple juice with cinnamon, which is served with holiday cakes to visitors. If you missed Christmas, come for Easter, but do not miss to smell the atmosphere of this beautiful museum.

    Great old area with some old fashioned shops. Roncesvalles Fruit village is one of those places. This place has been here for at least 30 years that I remember it. Great place for fruit and veg. Always fresh and always good service. unfortunately these old places are slowly going away so support this place as much as you can.

    What a fantastic area, great for running, walking and just enjoying the outdoors

    We really enjoyed the wildlife, squirrels and never seen so many cormorants (or were they shaggs) in one place. Bonus of seeing Martins as well. Just walking along the banks of Lake Ontario with the backdrop of the CN tower and the city was magical.
    Looks like the area has lots of events including the Cinesphere. Seems we had just missed a big music event which finished the day before we arrived. This may explain the only disappointing thing and that was the amount of litter.

    We spent several hours just walking and enjoying the scenery and wildlife and occasionally taking advantage of the great seating that's scattered around the whole area. However we still didn't get all the way around

    Classic family and friends fun! We went to celebrate a birthday and it was definitely a great experience where we had fun and best of all, didn't need to think about food.

    The quality of the food is par with like a Swiss Chalet but the quantities are massive and you will not need food until the next day!

    The performances are done really well and you will be cheering very loudly a lot.

    Overall would recommend for families and friend groups of all ages for some good fun. VIP upgrades are definitely a must for the best experience (like 50% of guests when I went were VIP)
