Where Toronto - - FAMILY FUN -

WHAT TO DO

Visit High Park (1873 Bloor

St. W.) to watch the wildlife by Gre­nadier Pond, kick a soc­cer ball around or walk one of the many trails to dis­cover hid­den art. The huge Jamie Bell Ad­ven­ture Play­ground, com­plete with slides, tur­rets and swings, is a kid’s dream come true. Don’t for­get to stroll through the High Park Zoo to give your re­gards to the capy­baras Bon­nie and Clyde, plus the many bi­son, lla­mas and pea­cocks. If the fore­cast is in­clement, book a ses­sion at Pur­suit OCR (444 Duf­ferin St.), Canada’s largest in­door ob­sta­cle course. On Sun­day morn­ings be­tween 7 a.m. and noon, the en­tire space is ex­clu­sively open to kids ages 12 and un­der.

The Cine­sphere at On­tario

Place (955 Lake Shore Blvd. W.) screens fam­ily favourites like Beauty and the Beast and

The Po­lar Ex­press on the world’s first per­ma­nent Imax screen (check on­tar­i­o­place.com for show­ings). After your movie, check out the Water­front Trail (wa­ter­front­trail.org); walk or rent a pair of wheels from a Bike Share Toronto (bike­share­toronto.com) sta­tion and en­joy a panoramic view of Lake On­tario.

WHERE TO EAT

The din­ner and the­atre combo at Me­dieval Times (10 Duf­ferin St.) can’t be beat. Feast on hearty fare like gar­lic bread, roasted chicken and pota­toes while you cheer on your knight. Chow down at lo­cal fam­ily favourite Bar­que Smoke­house (299 Ron­ces­valles Ave.), where the kids’ menu in­cludes chicken fin­gers, a cae­sar with can­died ba­con and a cookie that wee ones can dec­o­rate them­selves.
