Yes, it can be done! A beautiful fall day, and a circle of us standing in the fallen leaves while dogs ran on the left and workout mommies jogged with strollers on the right of us. We signed the license at a picnic table and took pictures by the gates.
Remember, you can't officially BOOK a park like Trinity for a wedding - but if you're just having an impromptu celebration, with a handful of people (we had 8) you can usually just turn up and have a small, brief wedding. And hugs all around.

However, it's NOT on the subway, of course, so you'll need a car to get there - or at least pick people up from Kennedy subway. It's worth the trek on a beautiful fall day. Be warned, the wedding limos were pulling up as we left....
BUT, it also seems to be jointly owned/booked/managed by the City AND the owners of the Grenadier Cafe in High Park. And they both dispute who books it. SO this weekend the High Park people had 'leased' it to a film production company, and the caretakers turned away three weddings - we were fortunate, as they weren't filming Sunday. Permits - Schpermits! Too bad, so sad... It's very hard to get to the bottom of the booking muddle, and in the meantime, that guano keeps piling up (filling up the pretty white billowing sheets suspending from the 2nd story - just don't look too hard at all those things that look like grey toothpaste....) The filming company was turning the downstairs courtyard into a "Venezuelan Market" - which, with the peeling paint, was just about right....
