Whether you're a cheapskate or just looking to do something on the weekend that won't cost you anything, these are all incredible options that showcase some of the best sides of the metropolis.

Toronto isn't necessarily an expensive city to explore whether as a local or as a visitor and it shows with all of these free options to choose from. Let's get to it!

Let's start off with some of the best free-to-enter parks and gardens.

Green Spaces

There are many great photography spots here and a well-run garden shop and cafe.

1.  Edwards Gardens

2. High Park

Toronto's miniature equivalent to New York's Central Park, this is the city's largest public park. The urban green space features numerous outdoor activities.

Amidst the bustle of the city, there's a green oasis that features a playground, off-leash dog parks and a beautiful greenhouse conservatory that is a must-visit.

3. Allan Gardens

Locals call it “the Bluffs” and is the perfect east-end getaway that is a worthwhile trip.  What makes it so interesting is how geologically diverse this stretch is. 

4. Scarborough Bluffs
