Happy Monday Everyone!  I hope you all had a lovely weekend.

 

Justin and I have been living in Toronto for over 6 years now, and we still have so many well known sites in the City that we have yet to visit.  We crossed one of those places off of our list last week . . . High Park, Toronto’s largest public park.

 

I’ve heard that the prettiest time to visit High Park is the one week of the year, in early May, when the cherry trees are in full bloom.  The park attracts thousands of visitors during this week, almost all of which are armed with their cameras, ready to capture the beautiful cherry blossoms.  There were so many people around the cherry trees when we went, that we regretfully didn’t even capture a photo of them.  We did, however, shoot these photos around the rest of the gorgeous park grounds.  As you can see in the photos, the park is simply stunning.  We’ll definitely be heading back sometime this summer for a fun picnic in the park.

    Such a beautiful park! At first I thought you were at Casa Loma because of the stairs (I visited Toronto last summer and LOVED it)

    Love those simple flats – they look great with a pair of casual jeans!

      Ha ha ha, yes, there were so many people around, but we found a few quite spots. Everyone was near the cherry trees, so the rest of the park was fairly quiet. 🙂

    I just went to High Park this year too after being in the city for 10 years.

    Just so you know the beaches and in around Rosedale have loads of cherry blossoms and magnolia trees too. If you want to avoid the crowds 😉

    • Jenny
      May 17, 2013

      Ha ha ha, well, I don’t feel so bad now 🙂 Thanks for letting me know. Surprisingly, I haven’t even been to the Beaches yet either! 🙂 I’ll have to head out that way this summer.

    I’ve been living just north of Toronto my whole life, and I can’t say that I’ve ever been to High Park. The sad thing is, I work IN Toronto, so I’m not sure what my excuse is.

    Your photos are lovely though…I’ll have to make it down at some point to bask in that beautiful scenery.
