Spring has descended upon us, friends! Shake off those winter blues and get out into the sunshine (but make sure to still wear layers – Canada, you can never tell). I absolutely love visiting the parks in Toronto when the greenery starts to bloom again in the spring, that is why I have compiled some of my absolute favourite parks for you all to visit when you get the chance.
1. High Park
Infamous for its late-April cherry blossom trees, High Park is a necessity on your spring park-hopping trip. This year they are predicted to bloom around April 20th, so keep an eye out!
2. Trinity Bellwoods Park
Trinity Bellwoods Park is about a 20-minute transit or a 45-minute walk from Ryerson campus.
3. G. Ross Lord Park
G. Ross Lord Park is an hour transit from campus but is absolutely worth the trip. Wait for a lovely, warm day and bring a picnic!
4. Allan Gardens
I know this isn’t technically a park, but it is just as lovely and just as relaxing.
5. Centennial Park
Centennial Park is, again, about an hour transit, but is also super worth it. It is full of gorgeous shrubbery, weeping willows, and even a conservatory!
I hope you are all feeling okay after winter hit us Canadians REAL hard this year! Take a day to yourself and visit one of these parks.
