Where to Enjoy the Fall Colours in Toronto

‘Tis the season for warmer layers, pumpkin spiced lattes and, of course, nature’s reveal of the annual fall foliage. 

While it might be hard to let go of those longer days and warmer temperatures, the fall brings with it all the coziness and comfort of a transitional season, preparing us for the deep chill of the winter months ahead. The only downside to this season is its short shelf life – so to help ensure you make the most of all that autumn has to offer, we’re letting you in on where to catch the most beautiful display of fall colours in the city.


Trinity Bellwoods

A year-round favourite amongst locals, Trinity Bellwoods offers endless options for getting active outdoors and taking part in one of the city’s most popular park spaces. Easily accessed via walking, biking or public transportation, locals can skip the drive (and save on the gas!) when making their way over, thanks to the park being situated conveniently between Dundas and Queen street. 

The tree-lined rows and scenic views of not only the city’s picturesque skyline, including the iconic CN Tower mean this park is a great place to capture the perfect fall photos set against one of Toronto’s best backdrops.

You can’t make a definitive list of Toronto parks for any reason and not include one of the city’s most beloved park destinations. For obvious reasons, High Park’s lush and sprawling mecca of green space is the ideal arena to indulge in the fall colours. The views of the trees in all their glory is especially breathtaking in the early morning, when the lake offers a mirrored, glass-like reflection of the surrounding foliage.


Coronation park

Situated along the waterfront, this popular local park offers plenty of shade throughout the day, which makes it a top pick for avid fall foliage photographers, who will get their best shots in this light. Plan your visit for early morning to avoid the seasonal crowds and to capture the lovely “shadow play” effect amongst the trees and lake. 


Scarborough Bluffs

Located just outside of city lines, the Scarborough Bluffs are still close enough to make our list! This park destination always offers a change of scenery that has visitors feeling as though they are someplace else entirely, what with the sprawling landscapes and dramatic blue water vistas. Pack a picnic and set up shop along the beach or on one of the many trails, where you can take in the full beauty of the surrounding foliage.


Evergreen Brick Works

One of the city’s most beloved local gems, Evergreen Brick Works is an area demonstrative of community spirit and the power in making something old new again. The former quarry is situated in an area enveloped by lush trails, naturalized ponds – and of course, spectacular skyline views. 

You can catch the best fall foliage views from the Don Valley Brickworks Park Lookout and the Governor’s Bridge Lookout, but really, this whole area is primed for spectacular seasonal hikes and fall photo ops!
