Neighbourhood Overview

The High Park neighbourhood contains a wealth of history. The area north of Bloor Street was formerly part of the Town of West Toronto Junction, which was annexed by the City of Toronto in 1909. The historical house at 191 High Park Avenue was built in 1888 for D.W. Clendenan, the first mayor of West Toronto Junction. The High Park property south of Bloor Street, was purchased in 1836 by John Howard Toronto’s first surveyor. Howard named his estate High Park because of its high elevation and magnificent view of Lake Ontario. In 1873 Howard deeded his beloved High Park estate to the City of Toronto. John Howard’s former residence Colborne Lodge is still situated on its original site in High Park, where it is now a public museum.

High Park encompasses 399 acres of public parkland. This city park includes a fishing pond, an outdoor theatre, an animal paddocks, picnic grounds, playgrounds, a restaurant, an historic museum, flower gardens, an adventure playground and a trackless train. High Park’s sports facilities include tennis, baseball, soccer, lawn bowling, swimming, and skating, as well as walking, jogging and cycling paths found throughout the park. You can read all about the rich history of High Park at the Runnymede Public Library on Bloor Street or the High Park Public Library on Roncesvalles. Both these libraries offer a myriad of programs for neighbourhood residents. Launched in 1998, the Jamie Bell Adventure Playground (located at 1873 Bloor St. W. in High Park) is a family meeting place that was inspired and built by the imagination and creativity of the local community and its children. A fire at the playground on March 17 destroyed a large portion of the popular structure. This beloved neighbourhood landmark was rebuilt in 2012.

The High Park Club off Indian Road has been a fixture in this neighbourhood since 1911. Club facilities include, two grass tennis courts, five sheets for curling, a banquet hall with indoor and balcony seating, a full-service bar and multiple lounges. In keeping up with the trends and the times the curling sheets have been converted to Pickleball courts for the summer season.
