Urban Getaway

Always a relaxing respite from the city. Lots of birds, beaver, mink, deer. A great bike ride for kids and adults, whether or not choose to wear trousers is entirely up to you.

Great place to get away from the city with great views of Lake Ontario. Parking is free and has lots of room but they close it at 4:30pm, so make sure to have your vehicle out before then. There is a multi-use paved path for bicycles and walkers and a non-paved path for walkers only. Also, there are only portable... More

It's an easy, but long walk. Very flat with no gain in elevation at all; not that it is a bad thing, but it's a little boring. However it is a good change from the cityscape of Toronto, a little natural waterfront sanctuary for a short work out. Lots of joggers, bikers and walkers. Do bring sun shades, caps or... More

A great walking, biking trail with different views of downtown and the Islands. No pets allowed and it goes out for kilometres. Great in all seasons for bird watching or just a quiet stroll, bike ride or run. Lots of water fowl can be seen and a great plac to bird watch during the Spring and Fall migration. Only open...

This is a really well done nature preserve, the TRCA have done some really good restoration work here. There's some good places to see the Toronto skyline and lots of birds. Good place for photographers. There's a good amount of parking just outside the entrance. Be prepared for a long walk if you want to get to the tip of... More

The Leslie Spit is undoubtedly the brightest bastion of zen among a city rife with chaos. The park is a fantastic way to get away from city life for a half-day and enjoy a picnic, some sculpture building and a fun bike ride all within view of Toronto's downtown. Definitely bring a camera and a bike, the shots are incredibly... More

The park... More

Staying in Downtown

Neighbourhood Profile
Downtown
At the heart of Toronto, Downtown is the destination for cheap eats and fast fashion. Cut through by hip and trendy Yonge Street, the vibe here is young, with a strong student influence from the Ryerson University Campus. As a result, the Downtown area is always in flux: undergoing the construction of new facilities, with fresh retail spaces and pop-up cafes. Home to Toronto's largest indoor shopping mall, a number of vintage cinemas, and a healthy nightlife centered on the area's Distillery District bar and clubs near the East End, it's both an easygoing daytime spot and a popular party place after sunset. It also features some of Toronto's best outdoor landmarks, including Yonge-Dundas Square and the Nathan Phillips Square: perfect for a concert, a skate, or a relaxing sit-down.
