Humber Bay Park | Etobicoke | Toronto

The tallest structure in the world now stands in downtown Dubai instead of downtown Toronto, but that doesn't affect my love for the CN Tower in the least. I think Toronto's skyline is stunning because of it. I have always liked how everyone knows what and where the CN Tower is whether they've lived in Toronto a few weeks or their entire life. It is a very distinct landmark. Even though I went to school downtown for years, my sense of direction is such that I would often find myself using its soaring presence as a navigation tool. As a result, the sight of it provides me with a sense of comfort and familiarity. These days my very favourite place to admire the downtown Toronto skyline is from the very awesome Humber Bay Park.

Not only does Humber Bay Park offer a really spectacular view of the city, it is home to the Humber Bay Butterfly Habitat which I never get tired of visiting.

You may ask, why a picture of a big grey boulder and not some pretty butterflies? My photography skills are simply not good enough for that. However, they were good enough to capture my jumping laughing dancing little man a good foot off the ground.

When was the last time you were so happy you just leaped right off the ground? This park, and its view, will bring it out of you I swear. And if you are visiting the city and wondering where to stay that gives you easy access to popular Toronto attractions, One King West is a great downtown hotel in Toronto. Rosie :)

We often walk along Humber Bay Park and then stop for a bite to eat at Eden Restaurant....
Like their Fritto Misto Appetizer plate!

Great pictures!

Good website! I really love how it is simple on my eyes and the data are well written. I'm wondering how I might be notified when a new post has been made. I've subscribed to your feed which must do the trick! Have a great day!
