    Hi there, wondering what the parking situation is during a weeknight in the park. I am planning to drive by after work tomorrow (Friday). Given that it is near full bloom in the park, I would not be naive enough to think the park would be empty on a weeknight but would definitely beat going during the weekend (+rain)!

    Thanks!

      Parking on a weeknight will be challenging, especially that now the blossoms are in peak bloom! Even 7am this morning when I was at the park parking was ALREADY filling up! You may get lucky and catch someone leaving and get their spot, otherwise you can try parking on nearby side streets around High Park or the Pay P parking lots on Lakeshore on the south end of the park. Hope this helps and you have a chance to get out and enjoy the blossoms!

    would like to take my parents who are unable to walk, so want to take them on a drive, would they see as much if we drive through high park? or would you know another route for a driving tour of cherry blossoms?

    • Sakura Steve says:

      They will be able to see some of the trees, a few even line the road. You would need to come through the Bloor & High Park Ave entrance and follow the road. During peak bloom, the park will be very busy so the driving will be very slow so patience is needed! Ideally walking the main path is best views, but you can also see some blossoms from the road near the High Park zoo. Hope this helps and hope you and your parents enjoy the visit to the park!

      Hi David,

      I’ve added TTC directions above that should help address your TTC directions question AND changed the page name to Maps & Directions to help others get here as well. And note that on the map above, the blue boxes with white ‘M’ inside them represent the TTC subway station stops.

      In short, you have multiple options to get here by subway, streetcar or even bus. The closest subway station is High Park on the Bloor-Danforth line (between Keele & Runnymede stations).
      There is also a 506 Streetcar that travels directly into the High Park ‘loop’ along the east side of the park.

      Hope this helps – if you need more detailed info, I’ll add some TTC links as well.
