COVID numbers in Toronto and a few other urban areas in Ontario are on the rise so the government has closed bars, restaurants and gyms again in those cities most affected. We went for a walk through High Park this week looking for places to have a picnic later in the week. We were hoping to find washroom facilities and a place to purchase a coffee. We struck out in both areas. So sad to see these abandoned chairs at the Park’s only restaurant. The good news is that there are covered areas where we can sit and have a snack brought from home.

This is my favourite time of year and one of my favourite places in the city of Toronto is High Park. The colours are amazing and magical.

Even during COVID people are decorating their homes and doors for Hallowe’en. As numbers rise in the city of Toronto there is an ever increasing risk that Trick or Treating will be discouraged. The residents in the High Park area, however, are not discouraged and continue to dig out their ghosts, goblins and other spooky characters to celebrate October 31st.

Autumn colours in High Park, Toronto
…amid speculation as to whether the kids will be out trick or treating this year
The good news for children is that the chief medical officer said that children will be allowed to go out on Hallowe’en night and are encouraged to wear masks as part of their costumes. Homes in my neighbourhood of New Toronto are already gearing up for the big night with decorations in front of their houses. Here are a few of them.
