Prepare for hours of amusement at one of these epic Toronto playgrounds. Pack a lunch, as each has washrooms on site, so you can camp out for a while.
High Park’s famous “castle” playground is huge and has so many nooks and crannies for kids to play and hide.
1873 Bloor Street West, Toronto
Known by locals as “castle park,” this Beaches playground is smaller, but has a wading pool attached.
2075 Queen St East, Toronto
Corktown Common Playground
This “naturescape” playground is almost a secret, so the play structures (and the city’s coolest slides) that are built right into the landscape are rarely if ever crowded.
East of Bayview Avenue, south of King Street, Toronto
Cherry Beach Soccer Field Playground
Commonly called the “Pirateship Playground,” the boat-shaped playground and modern climbing structures are located north of the soccer field, and almost always empty.
115 Unwin Avenue, Toronto
