At Tommy Thompson Park we are pleased to offer a wide range of guided nature walks suited to various types of park visitors. Whether you are interested in a birding walk, a general nature walk, or a family nature walk, we’ve got a walk for you at TTP!
Join us on a guided nature walk as we explore Toronto's urban wilderness in Spring! We'll share information about the park as well as discuss what plants and animals are up to this time of year. Layer up, put on your rain coat, and breathe in the fresh air as you explore natural park habitats against the stunning back-drop of Lake Ontario.

Spring means migration season, and the birds are excited! Join our guide birders and discover which migrates have made their way to Tommy Thompson Park on their way North to their nesting grounds! The park has seen over 300 bird species, and the majority of these are migrants who just pass through at this exciting time of year.
Trail descriptions and routes walked
Depending on the route walked you will experience a range of trails including the Multi-use Trail, Pedestrian Trails and Nature Trails. The exact route will be determined by your walk leader. The duration of most walks is two to three hours.
