8 Best Places to See Fall Colours in Toronto

8 Best Places to See Fall Colours in Toronto

Seeing all the pretty fall colours and foliage is one of my fave things about autumn in Toronto.

Of course, transitioning summer outfits for fall and throwing on a leather jacket and booties over everything is another perk of fall.

Fall outfits are just so much more interesting than outfits for other seasons, ya know?

There are so many cool spots in the city to check out fall foliage, whether you’re just lookin’ to enjoy the crisp autumn weather or snap some snazzy fall pics.

Here are some of the best places to see fall colours in Toronto!

Best places to see fall colours in Toronto

Fall in High Park, Toronto

High Park

As one of the largest parks in Toronto, High Park offers up plenty of stunning fall colours.

Rent a Bike Share and take a ride around the park, or just walk around and soak up the stunning fall foliage.

There’s also a little (free!) zoo here if you want to meet some animals.

LOCATION: 1873 Bloor St W, Toronto, ON

Trinity Bellwoods Park

Trinity Bellwoods is one of the most popular parks in Toronto, and the views are pretty sweet during the fall.

You can even get a little peep of the CN Tower between the colourful trees.

If you’re in the mood for a sweet treat afterwards, head across the street to iHalo Krunch for soft serve ice cream!

LOCATION: 790 Queen St W, Toronto, ON

Fall colours and foliage at Trillium Park in Toronto

Trillium Park

Trillium Park is a bit of a newer park in the city, and it’s one of my favourite parks in Toronto.

It’s located along the lakeshore, and you can see some pretty epic views of the Toronto skyline from here.

It’s especially beautiful during the fall with all the pretty fall colours!

LOCATION: 955 Lake Shore Blvd. West, Toronto, ON

Fall colours and foliage at Ontario Place in Toronto

Ontario Place

Ontario Place is right beside Trillium Park, and it also shares the same address.

Since it’s not really used for anything other than concerts or festivals, it’s pretty much abandoned.

Kinda sketchy, but at least you’ll get photos without people in them.

There are plenty of pretty fall colours here, and you can even walk through the rock tunnel to see some pretty ceiling lights (lit up all-day year-round).

LOCATION: 955 Lake Shore Blvd. West, Toronto, ON

Fall foliage at the Toronto Harbourfront

Toronto Harbourfront

I always love visiting the Harbourfront year-round – it’s beautiful any time of year, and there’s always something to do in the neighbourhood.

There are plenty of trees lining the Harbourfront, which means plenty of fall foliage to see!

Afterwards, do these fun activities at the Harbourfront or hit up the best Harbourfront restaurants.

LOCATION: 235 Queens Quay West, Toronto, ON

Liberty Village, Toronto

Liberty Village

Liberty Village has some cool older buildings lined with vines that change colours during the seasons.

Grab some coffee at Louie Craft Coffee or Balzac’s, then take a walk around the neighbourhood and enjoy the fall colours.

While you’re at it, check out the Toronto Carpet Factory mural and the “Hustle” mural in the area!

Liberty Village is one of the cutest neighbourhoods in Toronto, and there are plenty of things to do and restaurants to eat at!

Glen Stewart Ravine

The Glen Stewart Ravine is an incredibly gorgeous spot in the Beaches neighbourhood.

It’s like a little escape from the city with the forested views, and the boardwalk trail makes it easy to walk along even when it’s rainy and muddy out.

LOCATION: 351 Glen Manor Dr, Toronto, ON

Scarborough Bluffs, Ontario

Scarborough Bluffs

The Bluffs are stunning year-round, but fall is definitely my favourite time to visit because of all the pretty fall foliage.

It’s a little bit of a trek to get there from downtown (especially via TTC), but it’s so worth the visit.

Be careful of the waves at Bluffer’s Park because they can get pretty dangerous!

Afterwards, you can grab a meal at one of Scarborough’s best restaurants!
