While I never felt totally removed from the surrounding city, it is nonetheless a very inviting escape from the hustle and bustle. Lots of trails and wildlife to enjoy, and especially nice around fall with the colourful leaves. There are many access points and intersecting paths giving visitors numerous hiking options, don't expect to see it all in one trip.... More

This is Canada's FIRST URBAN NATIONAL Park. What differentiates it from our other National parks is it's proximity to Toronto, the largest metropolitan area in the country. While it brings to mind my other favourite urban park- Central Park in NYC, when the Rouge National Urban Park is fully established, it will be over 20 times the size of Central... More

This is a great park, and definitely worth a visit, though it is a relatively strange choice as a national park, considering Canada's other standout national parks. While there is lots of nature here, two major four lane highways cross this park's path, and signs of urbanity are never far away. In terms of great parks, this is more of... More

Great linked hikes within the city limits of Toronto but you feel as if you are far far away. Open Carolinian woods, a rushing stream (Little Rouge Creek) a bit of elevation, wildlife, lots of birds, peace and quiet. This park is transitioning to Canada's first Urban National Park and no doubt there will be more trails and more areas... More

If you are looking to avoid long trips, traffic and expenses to get away for a day or two this is a good alternative. Slated to be part of a very unique National Park in the future, this will be the first truly urban National Park to be created. In the meantime it offers a lot of wild and semi-wild... More

This is one of the rare places in Toronto that you can see ups and downs and hills, you can walk, cycle, picnic and fishing. Rouge river especially the last part which connects to lack Ontario is good place for fishing

I like it , this park is very big , but you have to be careful about the bugs, and do not forget the anti- insect spray . It is extended from south of Markham to North with a lot of nice scenery.

Staying in Scarborough

Neighbourhood Profile
Scarborough
Situated astride Lake Ontario, Scarborough is a district heavily influenced by immigration. With a number of low-rent shopping and dining options making it a highly affordable part of town, and boasting one of Toronto's largest shopping malls, the otherwise green suburban neighborhood is a good place to go for bargains and discounts. It also draws in photographers. The spires, archways, and cavernous rooms of the BAPS Shri Swaminarayan Mandir Palace are filled with breathtaking art, architecture, and detailed reliefs – it’s like entering a different world, The ruins of columns and installation art at the Guild Inn makes a free-for-all exploration site, while the big-name draw for young photographers is the menagerie at the Toronto Zoo. While many visitors shirk Scarborough as too suburban, its houses are some of Toronto's most mystical and haunting architectural beauties. And for adventure lovers, it has river-rafting and some unique hiking trails.
