Generally this is a very scenic and quiet park....but every little while, some feel that we all must want to hear their music and noise. Why come to a scenic and quiet park just to blast your noise? Be respectufl. Relax. Listen to the birds and the sound of the water....its why we go there. BY THE WAY, the path... More

My husband and I like to visit new parks, but this park was full of off-leash dogs and rude dog owners, swearing at us when we asked them why they let their dogs jump on us. We saw no enforcement at all of the on-leash policy at all. We hated this place.

Whether going for a bike ride, a stroll or roller blade, you will often be the only person in sight. Under utilized park in the city. Lots of parking, trees, wild flowers and the odd coyote.

I have been going here for years & it is always a wonderful natural experience. Part of the Rouge Valley in Toronto this park is a great blend of open grassy fields for a picnic, playing games, flying kites & enjoying a sunny day. Very well maintained, clean & provides generous parking lots. Alongside the river is a lengthy path... More

Ok - I have stolen the Zoo's old mantra - but it's apropos... Located in the east end of Toronto this park contains a system of walking and bike paths, playgrounds, picnic area, and far more that is great to explore. The Highland Creek provides a central focus to the park which runs through the heart of neighborhoods nestled high... More

Staying in Scarborough

Neighbourhood Profile
Situated astride Lake Ontario, Scarborough is a district heavily influenced by immigration. With a number of low-rent shopping and dining options making it a highly affordable part of town, and boasting one of Toronto's largest shopping malls, the otherwise green suburban neighborhood is a good place to go for bargains and discounts. It also draws in photographers. The spires, archways, and cavernous rooms of the BAPS Shri Swaminarayan Mandir Palace are filled with breathtaking art, architecture, and detailed reliefs – it’s like entering a different world, The ruins of columns and installation art at the Guild Inn makes a free-for-all exploration site, while the big-name draw for young photographers is the menagerie at the Toronto Zoo. While many visitors shirk Scarborough as too suburban, its houses are some of Toronto's most mystical and haunting architectural beauties. And for adventure lovers, it has river-rafting and some unique hiking trails.
