Photo gallery: High Park goes up in flames

But in a good, healthy way!


People may have unwittingly thought that High Park was going up in flames this weekend. Far from being a tragic inferno, the controlled prescribed burn has become an annual routine to help to restore and protect the rare Black Oak savannah woodlands in the park.

Months of planning lead up to that one day with perfect weather conditions. The wafting plumes of smoke and flame draw in curious passersby and leaves you strangely craving marshmallows.
