Welcome to Toronto's High Park, home to one of North America's most endangered habitats: Black Oak Savannah, a remnant of the sand prairie systems that used to cover much of southern Ontario. Majestic black oaks tower over tallgrass prairie plants like big bluestem, butterfly milkweed and wild lupine.

This park is a perfect place to explore nature right in the city! It's remarkable how many different species of birds, mammals, insects and plants you can discover. Take a walk along the nature trails. Or visit the park's ponds and creeks and watch quietly for wildlife.

Remember how precious the park's natural areas are and please treat the park with respect, so many more people can enjoy the wonderful legacy John Howard has passed along to us.
