High Park Youth Rangers

High Park Rangers is a youth leadership group that meets every week to learn about nature, do stewardship activities in the park, and connect with other nature-loving youth. Towards the conclusion of the season they lead a free Know Your Nature hike for the public presenting all they have learned about nature during the season.

Saturday, March 2, 10AM-12PM

This event will begin at the High Park Nature Centre’s Forest School building located at 375 Colborne Lodge Drive.

A number of changes were made to the travel network within High Park as part of the High Park Movement Strategy that might influence your decision to drive to High Park. In case you’re driving we strongly recommend you to park your car at the public parking lot near Grenadier Cafe.

We continue to recommend using the TTC or biking as the best way to get to High Park and the Nature Centre. The Nature Centre is situated just a 5-minute walk from the High Park Subway Station. In case you were biking, there are bike racks available in front of the Nature Centre.

Please note, High Park is closed to cars on the weekends. If your event is on a weekend, you will need to park outside the park and walk in, or take transit.
