Stretching 32 km between the Oak Ridges Moraine and Lake Ontario, the Don Valley is a picturesque—and accessible—slice of nature in the city for nature lovers. It is the perfect place to spend an afternoon on bike or on foot.

Cherry BeachSwimming at Cherry Beach

Another favourite oasis just minutes from downtown, Cherry Beach is the perfect place to adventure with your furry friend. Home to one of the best off-leash dog parks in the city, both people and dogs are encouraged to frolic in the water. No pup? No problem. It’s also the perfect place to dig your feet into the sand, pull out a book, and pretend the hot dog stand is actually a Mai Tai hut (all inclusive, of course). In addition to being relaxation central, Cherry Beach also hosts fun music events throughout the summer.
Cherry Blossoms High Park

Walking through High Park

Further west, High Park has it all: a pool, a zoo, and gorgeous cherry blossoms that spring to life once a year. A walk through High Park is the perfect date activity, exercise routine, or for dose of inspiration.

Finally, Trinity Bellwoods is the park that brings its Queen West community together. Grab a blanket to sit on, a frisbee to throw, a picnic of your favourite eats, and spend an afternoon enjoying all the vitamin D and fresh air the park has to offer.
