If you’re looking for that real dark sky experience ,head over to the sprawling green space at Sunnybrook Park in North York.

With trees that line every pathway, grass as far as the eye can see, and benches aplenty, Sunnybrook is the ultimate spot for couples, friends, or just for one to enjoy their own company.

Where: 1132 Leslie Street


This beach is usually pretty quiet in the evenings, so it’s the perfect spot to catch the show. Bring a blanket, some snacks, and enjoy the insane views of the skyline while you’re there.

Where: 1 Cherry Street


Located in the Port Lands, this unique urban nature park is completely removed from the hustle and bustle of the big city.

Settle in by the shoreline and take in a sunset, a sunrise, or in tonight’s case, an incredible meteor shower.

Where: 1 Leslie Street

Evergreen Brick Works is a former brick factory that has been transformed into a beautiful oasis of picturesque gardens, wetlands, and walking trails.

The surrounding tree canopies and lush surroundings block out the city lights, so you can observe the night sky in peace.
