Located on the other side of Runnymede, south of Annette, west of Keele street, and down to Lakeshore, High Park is culturally vibrant and reminiscent of Bloor-West Village. The houses are a medley of detached and semi’s with condos and townhouses popping up to meet the growing demand of younger buyers looking for affordable housing close to the city. The town strip has an urban vibe to it and is very walkable. Locals enjoy the outdoors on bikes, or head with pets in tow, to the many restaurants, shops, coffee bars, and fruit markets. As per it’s name, High Park is known for it’s green acres oasis. High Park (the park itself) is a mixed recreational and natural park, with tennis, swimming pool, baseball diamonds, bike paths, dog park, gardens, playgrounds and a zoo. It is also home to an open air theatre, a popular spot for summer picnics, date night or a night out with the kids. High Park is a place where culture and nature collide, making it a great neighbourhood for diverse mix of residents from the elderly to young professionals and growing families.
