My picks below, to have a quintessential Toronto experience, are aimed at getting you away from the urban bustle and immersed into appealing natural or man-made environments with their distinctive sights, sounds, and tastes.
1. Take in the fall colours at Taylor Creek Park.
Taylor Creek Park
Around mid to late October, Taylor Creek Park offers one of the best displays of fall colours in the city. Known almost exclusively to locals, a 5-kilometre paved path starts near Victoria Park subway station, then follows a creek through forested parkland. You’ll share the space with bicycles and people pushing strollers. Bring water. Washrooms are often locked. #walking #park #fallcolours #autumn
