high park fall colours

12 stunning photos of fall colours in High Park

Fall is in full effect in High Park with bright bursts of colour through the central and eastern sides of the park. While some leaf fall has taken place in areas like the cherry tree path down to Grenadier Pond, the western ravines are still green enough to suggest that there will be a couple of weeks left of viewing opportunities.

That said, the most saturated spots won't be around for too much longer. It's quite remarkable to encounter some of the maple trees ablaze in orange and red beside other varieties that have yet to sport much colour. Any trip to check it all out should include a walk through the middle of the park between West Rd. and Colborne Lodge Dr.

High Park is a pretty magical place most times of the year, but it is particularly beautiful right now in the remaining days of autumn. Here's what it all looks like with a few photos from late fall last year thrown in to show what's in store.
