  1. Swimming

    Cherry Beach in the east and Hanlan’s Point are two of Toronto’s best beaches. While the city has improved water quality, beaches are often posted with no-swimming signs, often after heavy rains. More reliable are the public pools.

  4. Jogging

    Extensive park and ravine trails mean lots of choice. Head to the Beach boardwalks, High Park, or the more secluded paths by the Don River.

  5. Cycling

    Many major roads and parks have bike lanes. A terrific recreational cycle is on the Martin Goodman Trail or at Leslie Street Spit.

  6. Hiking

    Toronto Field Naturalists (TFN) offer daily tours of natural areas, led by knowledgeable volunteers. The 500-mile (800-km) Bruce Trail, running along the Niagara Escarpment from Niagara to Tobermory, has many access points. The Bruce Trail Association (BTA) is a mine of information.
