LOL we both got it wrong. It's not Hide, nor Hyde, it's High

Compare in beauty etc...perhaps not, but it is fairly central and large.

I agree, Mont Royal Park is a very unique park in Canada.

I have a condo on the southern border of High Park, but wouldn't exactly call it central. Most of my friends would rarely come to that area because it is quite a commute from downtown or other parts of Toronto. There are some nice restaurants and bars north of High Park on Bloor, but they are pretty sleepy and tame compared to the likes of Queen West, Spadina, or Yonge.

...hence my saying " fairly central ". It's a nice park, but agree not as dramatic as Mt Royal or dare I say Stanley Park.

Stanley Park is near without equal anywhere in the world.

I don't know enough about city parks outside of the US, Canada and Europe. There are some apparently really incredible ones in Asia...I think Singapore?? ...among others.

Stanley Park is incredible though.

There are lots of more impressive parks, but there's nothing like Stanley Park that I've seen.

In the last 2 weeks the TTC and Go services in Toronto have been really bad. Every day there are problems so I take back my vote. My city's got to get transit in shape up because this getting crazy.

I think Stanley Park is an example of a perfect city park. It has everything - beautiful forest, hills, lakes, sea and beautiful view of the mountains just minutes walk from the central downtown. It even got its own "mermaid" ("Girl in a wetsuit").
