Dryads, Wood Nymphs, Fairies & Gnomes! High Park’s magical woodland creatures work hard to make High Park a winter wonderland. They need our help to build some well insulated fairy homes. Please support your local fairies.
Two wild turkeys have taken refuge in High Park lately (smoky grey colour phase). If you see them, please keep your distance, do not feed them, and keep your dog on-leash and under control. More about High Park birds and High Park in winter.
