Toogood Pond Park

Location: City of Markham, Unionville, Ontario, Canada (near the shops and restaurants of historic Main Street Unionville)

Toogood Pond is a 33-hectare park that has many points of interest including a partially naturalized pond and a marsh.

A walkway circles the pond and is popular for taking leisurely walks.


The pond is home to many Canada Geese, ducks, fish, and other wildlife. Surrounding the pond are many beautiful walkways, park benches and picnic tables. There is a man-made dam at the south-east end that includes a waterfall. On the weekends, you can often see newlyweds having their photographs taken.

Toogood Pond is named after the Toogood family. The pond was originally the mill pond that powered the grist mill in the 1840s. In the early 20th century the pond was called Willow Pond or Willow Lake and was the home to several small summer cottages on north Main Street. Some had been cottages, for grist mill workers, in their earliest incarnation. Those cottages evolved into homes by the middle of the century, but are almost all gone now being replaced by large spacious expensive homes.

There is also a store where you can enjoy an ice cream or refreshment while sitting on the adjoining patio overlooking the pond.

Parking and admission are free. Plenty of parking.

Nearby are the shops of historic Main St. Unionville.
