TOP 8 THINGS TO DO IN SCARBOROUGH

Scarborough doesn’t always get the attention it deserves and as someone that grew up here, I know that there are plenty of hidden gems that most non-locals never get a chance to visit. 

Locals know where to go but there isn’t great coverage on the top things to do in Scarborough, Ontario so here is a list the best that this neighbourhood has to offer.

SCARBOROUGH BLUFFS

Bluffer’s Park is the most iconic part of the escarpment and has the most visible and dominant part of the exposed rock face. The best view of it is from Lookout Point in the park.

FISHMAN LOBSTER CLUBHOUSE

The Lobster Mountain or Lobster Tower was invented here but I’m going to say it is. Originally located closer to Pacific Mall, this new location is home to a lobster lover’s paradise.

It’s easy to forget that there’s easy access to Lake Ontario from Scarborough. While most of us don’t have boats to the Cathedral Bluffs Yacht Club, this spot is great for a number of reasons.

BLUFFER’S PARK MARINA

GUILD PARK AND GARDENS

Originally known as Guildwood Park, the space is adjoined with Guild Inn Estate. You’ll realize there’s a fascinating story to what has turned this space into one of the most beautiful parks.

TORONTO ZOO

Come here to see a wide range of animals including their largest, ‘Samson’, a male river hippopotamus and smallest, a worker Leaf-cutter ant. One of my favourites is the Gorilla Rainforest.

ROUGE NATIONAL URBAN PARK

This massive and biodiverse ecosystem lays claim as the nation’s first National Urban Park. That’s a lot of things packed into one protected area but that’s what awaits visitors is awesome hiking.
