Centennial Park, just 2.5 miles southeast of the Central Business District (CBD), is a great place to to get lost in nature on your run. The main route through Centennial Park is a loop around Grand Drive. This 3.5-km loop within the park has parallel paths for bikes, cars, runners and horses (a dirt bridal path). However, if you want to make things a little bit more interesting, follow our route which follows Grand Drive in the north part of the park, and the lake-shores in the south. It’s easy to get there on public transit. Just take one of the buses that head out to Oxford Street from the CBD (for example, use the bus stops at the south end of Hyde Park to catch lines 352, 378, 380 or M40).
Note: the park is only open between 6 a.m. and 6 p.m.
