High Park Staycation - Bookings by request

These NEW programs are 2 hour outdoor nature experiences for up to 9 people.

High Park Staycations are small group outdoor adventures which provide a mixture of learning, fun & relaxation. These programs are an alternative way to gather with loved ones in nature this summer, while also adhering to social distancing regulations.

The staycation includes:

A one hour guided hike by a nature interpreter

A HPNC nature Interpreter will lead a wander which connects to High Park's three ecosystems. We'll adapt it to make sure it's engaging for all in attendance (children, youth, and adults). You'll build your relationship with local plants and animals, and take part in fun, safely distanced activities along the way.


A one hour campfire in our garden

We'll have a campfire ready upon your return from the hike in our beautiful restoration garden, OURSpace. Here you will have an hour of self-directed time to picnic (roasting snack add-ons available) and explore the diversity of wildflower, pollinator and bird friends that abound in this special space in High Park. Nature Centre staff will be close by during this time and take care of the clean up. No alcoholic beverages, please!

Expectations are that groups will adhere to social distancing rules with instructors and group members, unless you're part of the same social or household bubble.

This experience can be used to celebrate a loved one's special day, or simply to share a walk, learn, and gather safely around a fire in Toronto's largest park.

Cost: $250

(for up to 9 people)
