Although spring is off to a slow start, the worst is over and we can begin looking forward to warmer temperatures. Toronto is an amazing city and with the warmer weather fast approaching, we recommend visiting the following Toronto locations to relax, play, and enjoy!

Take a Stroll Through High Park

High Park attracts many admirers in the spring with its beautiful Sakura cherry trees and cherry blossoms. The cherry blossoms typically bloom in late April or early May and last for approximately a week. If you happen to miss the cherry blossoms, High Park offers many other attractions, including: a Chinese garden, zoo (free admission), playground, waterfront, and off-leash dog park. Visit the High Park website for more information and updates on the cherry blossoms.


Sunbathe and Shop at The Beaches

Sun, Surf, and Shopping. The Beaches is a popular neighbourhood on Toronto’s east side. At the heart of The Beaches community, you’ll find dozens of independent shops and boutiques offering a number of unique products. After you’ve had your fill of shopping, take a walk past the colourful, cottage-like houses toward the beach. Join in on a friendly volleyball game or pull out a beach blanket and watch the waves roll in. With a long stretch of uninterrupted sandy beaches and boardwalk, The Beaches is an attractive destination for anyone on a warm spring day.

Visit the Island

Toronto’s island getaway, Centre Island is only a short ferry ride from downtown Toronto. Island visitors can explore the many island trails by bike (rentals available) or by foot. For a unique perspective of the Toronto skyline, rent a kayak or canoe and see Toronto from the water. If you have children, bring them to the Centreville Amusement Park. Spend the day with the kids riding the Ferris wheel or playing miniature golf. With ample seating, firepits, and barbecues, Centre Island is the perfect spring picnic destination.

Head to the Waterfront

When the weather warms up, consider heading down to the beautiful waterfront. The waterfront plays host to a wide variety of recreational activities and events. If you’re feeling active, see a more natural side of Toronto by biking or walking part of the 1400 km Waterfront Trail that spans 68 communities and over 405 parks. If relaxation is what you desire, there are many quiet parks along the trail that offer the solitude you need to peacefully unwind. Children will enjoy the many playgrounds and beaches that surround the lake. A visit to the waterfront is ideal for a beautiful spring day.
