Parks, Forestry & Recreation
A City Within a Park
Toronto has more than 1,500 parks with numerous open spaces and 600 km of trails. The parks system covers 8,000 hectares, or roughly 13% of the city's land area. It includes about 40% of Toronto's natural areas, many of which lie within the ravine system and along the Lake Ontario shoreline. City parks also feature beaches, playgrounds, sports fields, gardens, conservatories, ice rinks, special events and much more for you to enjoy.
The City is hosting a series of Ravine Strategy pop-up consultations throughout the summer to get input on the draft guiding principles and actions. Visit toronto.ca/ravinestrategy for details.
