Toronto is home to a rare free family fun gem, High Park Zoo. While it began with just deer in 1893, this community zoo has expanded to include several other areas to home animals around the world. Take a stroll to wander and learn about the bison, llamas, peacocks, emus, barbary sheep and more.

High Park Zoo is a great choice for families, to go for a scenic walk and also to satisfy kids’ love of animals. Parking is free in two separate lots; the first being at Grenadier Restaurant and the second one on Spring Road (at the southeast corner of the park).

It’s nestled within beautiful High Park, which is a hub for many outdoor activities, especially in the summer months. You can easily make a day trip out of it: pack a picnic, buy some ice cream, cool off at the splash pad, or visit the nearby playground.
