High Park Toronto, Ontario, Canada

High Park picnics are truly memorable. In spring, view cherry blossoms, walk the labyrinth, and visit the zoo.

High Park is Toronto’s largest public park – at 400 acres – it truly provides an oasis from the urban hustle and bustle around it.  You will find sports facilities, hiking trails, jogging paths, a mini zoo, playgrounds, ponds and an off leash dog area.  Whether your kids need to burn off some energy, you want to lounge on a blanket with your beloved, or work off the decadent meal from the night before, High Park can accommodate.

The website is chock full of information about the amenities and events that are happening all year round. One of the most famous is the Sakura Cherry Blossom Blooming which happens in late April or early May each year.

Grab picnic supplies at the Cheese Boutique, a flask of saké, and your best guy or girl, or the rugrats and some sports paraphernalia.  If you’re lucky, your visit will coincide with the hippie trance party — complete with DJ, hula hoops, and other kooky entertainment (be prepared for that sweetly skunky aroma!)

A sure to escape far from the madding crowd can be had by crossing the parking lot, then over a hill to the labyrinth.  Walk meditatively along the 11 circuit Chartres labyrinth, then head to the zoo to admire smelly llamas, bison, yaks and peacocks.

The park is accessible by car, bicycle, on foot, via subway, bus or streetcar.
