Colonel Danforth Park can be found northwest of Lawrence Avenue and Meadowvale Road. If you follow the park trail to the northwest, you will find Morningside Park. Go southeast and you will find the Lower Highland Creek Park. This stretch of green space is another gem of a ravine in Toronto featuring the Highland Creek Trail. Wildlife, interesting plants and Highland Creek make this a wonderful walk in the east end.

This park has a fenced Dogs Off-Leash Area.
