Attractions & things to do for the kids in your life

Craigleigh Gardens (Toronto)

Really off the beaten track

Kids won't appreciate the amazing houses north of the Castle Frank Subway Station but you will! Off the subway, you can walk up Castle Frank Road to reach the discrete entrance of Craigleigh Gardens ( a 10-minute walk). It's trickier with a car since you can only park for one hour on the nearby streets. Maybe this park featured a garden in another time. Nowadays, the main interest of this vast park is that an opening in the middle of its northern side will give you access to the Milkman Lane going down into a majestic ravine. It's the best outings for young explorers but not for strollers! At the fork of the trails, you can follow the signs for Moore Park (passing by the Don Valley Evergreen Brick Works) or David A. Balfour Park, both roughly 2 kms away.
