Sunday Walking Tour
Back in its heyday, Sunnyside was the most famous attraction Toronto had to offer. It was dubbed "the Poor Man's Riviera" because it was supposedly accessible by all – except, it wasn't. Who was allowed, and who wasn't? Colborne Lodge's HistoricTO tour invites you to explore the tales, trepidations and triumphs of Toronto's Sunnyside shoreline and the south end of High Park. From lakefront to boardwalk, Black Oak Savannah to baseball diamond, discover the rich social and natural history of the area on this roughly 60 minute tour ending at a scenic lookout over Grenadier pond. The perfect start or finish to your day out in the park!

(Please Note: We will be walking on uneven surfaces, down a small hill, with limited seating and shaded areas. High Park is closed to vehicular traffic on Saturdays and Sundays. To reach Colborne Lodge by TTC take the 501 streetcar to Colborne Lodge Drive or take the subway to High Park Subway Station and walk south through the park.)
