High Park: Overview
The beauty of High Park and its homes cannot be separated from the fact that it borders Toronto’s crown jewel park – High Park. It means that there are tall trees and outdoor spaces to wander the day away in. At 400 acres, with extensive gardens ranging from a children’s garden to formal English gardens, you can walk this park every day and still see something new. Given to the city of Toronto, by the Howard Family in 1873, Torontonians can enjoy its zoo, playgrounds, off leash area, café, and farmers market. There are also outdoor pools in summer and skating rinks in winter. Grenadier Pond offers tranquility by the water in the middle of the city.
There is every possible amenity in this neighbourhood with easy access to three amazing shopping, food and entertainment districts – Bloor West Village, Roncesvalles Village and the Junction — High Park is in the heart of it all.
Schools are highly desirable in this area and Humberside Collegiate Institute stands high up on the list of appealing schools. There are many daycare facilities of every size and style, based on your childcare needs.
Commuting is incredibly easy and fast with excellent access to public transit (3 subway stations) and is also only minutes from all the major highway arteries. (less that 2 kms.)
With beautiful, older homes, mostly built in the early 1900’s, there is plenty of architectural appeal and mature trees. This is an amazing place to live.
