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!!!

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.

The Harbourfront is a great place to visit during the warmer months of the year, but during the "Doors Open" annual event, it's a can't-miss attraction. Lots of free tours... many on the harbourfront boats.

There is always something going on down at the Harbourfront Centre. Last year we attended a salsa festival and this year the Circus festival. Directly South from the CN tower, stopping here as you tour around downtown Toronto is a great choice. On a weekend in the summer there is no doubt something going on. There is a large stage... More
