There’s more to High Park than the cherry blossom trees. The hiking trails, lakes, streams, manicured gardens, and lush greenery are definitely a must see, not to mention they make the perfect photo backdrops.

If you’re in the mood to escape the city for a few hours, head east and you’ll find yourself surrounded by some of the most scenic views in all of Ontario. It’s hard to believe such a stunning place exists in Toronto, as the blue water and sandy beaches are more reminiscent of something you might come across in Europe.

On those rainy spring days when you still want to enjoy the beauty of the season, head to this century-old greenhouse that will make you feel worlds away from the city. With hundreds of tropical plants from around the world, you’ll always manage to find the perfect backdrop for an impromptu photo shoot.

While the Toronto Island is usually the go-to spot to take in Toronto’s incredible skyline, we’re quickly learning that some of the best views are seen on the water.

During spring in Toronto, picnics and Trinity Bellwoods Park go together like footlong hotdogs and Blue Jays games. The next sunny day, round up your friends and head to the park and enjoy the people watching and scenery.

Douglas Coupland’s “Red Canoe” at Canoe Landing Park is one of our favourite spots to snap a few pics. What could be more Canadian than an incredible view of the CN tower from the comfort of a big red canoe?
