There was so much to do in such a short time -- although there was major construction going on -- it was still so much fun with plenty to do. I have already made my hotel reservation for next year 2015!!!!!!!!!!!!!

My last trip to Toronto we had a much better experience because the area was not under construction. Once they're done it will be even better and I would fully recommend it for a visit. But until then, I would stay away. The streets, traffic and parking were a nightmare!

Nice view of water, clean, multiple eating options. Close to downtown and easily accessible by ttc. Walking distance from other toronto sites. Worth to see. Does not take long to see entire area.

Perhaps we arrived too early but apart from the odd cafe and eatery, there was no real activity of interest.

it was very nice to walk along the river. There are plenty of things to see and places to eat, and most importantly, beers to drink!

I love the way it is now. Recently rejuvenated. One of my fave spot in Toronto. Free live music, food variety, places to eat, playground, lakeview and people. Clean and peaceful. We spent this past Canada day weekend in this area and it was great. The fireworks was excellent. Will go again and again!!!

We'd decided to have a walk along the the lakeside, and got off the hop on and off tour bus at the Harbourfront... More

Endless music, movies, dancing, and cultural events in the summer months. Music every weekend along with themed vendors and food. Free movie night. Free dancing night. Canoe and speedboat rentals. Restaurants and walking oaths. Even a sandy "beach" with chairs. A lovely part of town.
