Cabbagetown’s little secret

Wellesley Park is a little gem hidden in the middle of Cabbagetown. I first visited it when attending the Forsythia Festival involving a parade which ends in this park. It includes a small playground but its main appeal lies in the setting of the park, with houses without front lawns directly facing the park. The trees are mature and majestic. There’s a staircase to explore down the grassy slope, where the forest thickens. (You can glimpse some of the oldest tombs of the Necropolis Cemetery from those stairs.) Down the stairs, turn left and you’ll reach the trail which runs along Rosedale Valley Road (quite spectacular in the fall).
