Toronto is full of scenic places to explore. In fact, there are over 1,600 parks and green spaces strewn across the city. In keeping with Toronto’s cultural diversity, the paths and parks of the city vary widely depending on the type of outing you’re looking for.
For a simple stroll along easy paths, Glen Stewart Ravine is a walker’s paradise. Located just north of the Beaches, the extensive wood path and stairs eliminate the need for any hard hiking, allowing visitors to admire the mature Maples and Red Oaks along its path. Looking for a place to ride your bike? The gorgeous tree canopy of the Moore Park Ravine stretches all the way from Mount Pleasant Cemetery to the Don Valley Brickworks and offers one of the most pleasant bike rides in the city.
Cedarvale Ravine combines open parkland with rugged edged wilderness, making it a haven for joggers, dog walkers, and anyone looking for a temporary return back to nature. Or perhaps you would like a taste of it all at Rouge Park before you settle down and camp overnight in Glen Rouge overnight campground, arguably the most enjoyable park in the city.
Whether you’re a seasoned hiker looking for an adventure or simply interested in taking a stroll through the great outdoors, Toronto has the outlet. After all, it didn’t get its quaint and somewhat hyperbolic nick name “The City Within A Park” for no reason!
