We brought our photographer here for our engagement shoot. The outcome was outstanding ~ such a magnificent backdrop, we could easily have mistaken the photos for the highlands in Scotland.

This was a lot of fun to hike. A great hike with amazing views. We spent a good day here hiking and had so much fun. We parked at the top and hiked along the edge. Then hiked down.

Situated astride Lake Ontario, Scarborough is a
district heavily influenced by immigration. With a
number of low-rent shopping and dining options making
it a highly affordable part of town, and boasting one
of Toronto's largest shopping malls, the otherwise
green suburban neighborhood is a good place to go for
bargains and discounts. It also draws in
