Recreation in Hillside
The Hillside neighbourhood is part of the Rouge Park mosaic that includes a unique combination of woodlands, valleys, meadows, rivers and farmland that all combine to form Canada's largest urban park. Rouge Park trails can be accessed at the Pearse House Interpretive Centre, located on Meadowvale Road, just opposite the Toronto Zoo. The Toronto Zoo which forms the southern boundary of this neighbourhood is situated on 710 acres of land and features over 5,000 animals. This Zoo features different theme parks including South America, Eurasia Pavilion, North American pavilion, African Pavilion, Indo-Malayan Pavilion and Canadian Animal Domain.
