The Mound (located at the east end of the Park) is the highest point in Downsview Park and one of the highest land formations in Toronto. Climb to the top (and get in some cardio!) for a great view of the Downsview neighbourhood, the CN Tower, birds during migration season and more.
The Mini Mound (at the south end of the park), although much smaller, is also a great photo op destination. Climb to the top and find one of our giant Muskoka chairs for that perfect Instagram shot!
Here’s a fun fact:
Both the Mound and the Mini Mound are human-made and were constructed using the soil that was dug up from the Lake and Ponds.
Until October 2022, you can also find an XOXO Downsview installation called the Wind Rose at the top of the Mound. It celebrates the wind, the view, and the Indigenous connections to this place.
