Harbour front is one of my favourite spot specially in summer season - the beauty of Ontario lake and the colourful city is showing the beauty of city. Any type of people can enjoy at this location. Lots of things to offer for enjoyment.

You have to take your family ice skating here. Incredible and worth the trip. First of all it is free unless you need rentals. It is beautiful...outdoor rink with a view of the lake and the island airport departures and landings. We went Saturday morning and plan on making it a weekly event. Also...coca cola had placed a coke machine... More

I used to live in the tall square condos directly across the street from here. Absolutely my favorite spot in Toronto by far. Tons of things to do and see around here, you will definitely enjoy it, Summer OR Winter! During winter there is a public outdoor skating rink directly facing the beautiful 'frozen' Lake Ontario. The rink has a... More

The Good Lovelies gave a performance not to be missed. Harbour front Theatre was a perfect venue. Excellent interaction with the audience during this Christmas concert.

When I go to Toronto, I park right across the street from the Harbourfront Center which is a nice attraction on the water. There is a nice gift shop, a viewing area to watch glass blowers, an ice-skating area overlooking the harbor, a few restaurants, theatre and art galleries. The main building where the glass blowing is has a the... More

Great place to just relax, have a beer and people/boat/plane watch. There are paddleboats on a little pond there (and I’m guessing skating in the winter), but no boats were on the pond. Just a man (on land) playing fetch with his dog in the water, which was fun to watch. The breeze off the lake is really nice. I... More

Harborfront is a fairly sprawling mall with a good selection of stores. The food court is also awesome and basically an upscale hawker center. The train to Sentosa also goes from here and is a good option. The stores are nice with a wide selection of mainstream and upscale stores. The roof is pretty neat also with great views of... More

Wandered down to the Harbourfront Center by chance and had a fabulous day strolling along enjoying a breeze, fabulous sailing ships and a bit of wildlife too! A nice relaxing day too get over the jet lag! Just wish we had more time to get over to the islands.
