The High Park neighbourhood is mainly residential, containing many semi-detached homes built in the early 20th century. The park for which it was named spans 400 acres, and is a mixed recreational and natural park, with sporting facilities, cultural facilities, educational facilities, gardens, playgrounds and a zoo. North of the park, the neighbourhood has several high-rise apartment buildings, built after the construction of the Bloor-Danforth subway.View Neighbourhood
