Scarborough is the region of Toronto hugging the city’s eastern fringe. Known by Torontonians as a mosaic of different ethnic cultures, Scarborough is also known for its breathtaking natural scenery.

Explore the Scarborough Bluffs, giant clay cliffs spanning nearly 15 kilometres, while taking in all the natural beauty Lake Ontario has to offer. The Rouge River, running along the eastern edge of Scarborough, is one of the last Southern-Ontario areas untouched by development since the arrival of 17th Century French fur traders. The 47-sq-km Rouge Park is the first National Urban Park in Canada and encompasses First Nations archeological sites.

Feeling hungry? Sample one of Scarborough’s many authentic Asian restaurants, from Filipino to South Indian to Northwestern Chinese.

If you’re looking to entertain everyone in the family, head on over to the Toronto Zoo, located right along the Rouge River. See fauna from all around the world including Giant Pandas!
