Centre Island is a great spot for little kids but older kids may be bored. However the ferry ride is fun for all ages. It is surprising to see that this is such a safe, family oriented place in the middle of a major city.

This place has absolutely everything you can think of for a great day out. Beaches parks fun fair restaurants etc. An amazing family day out. The ferry operates very regularly. We hired bikes when there and this was a great way to explore the island.

Nice views of Toronto from the ferry and the island. Take a walk on the island and enjoy the scenery or stop at the restaurants / cafes and enjoy some food.

Loved the Easter Egg hunt for the kids at Centreville! It was so fun to be at the park without all the crowds. A little cold at this time of year. My older child got a little bored of all the walking (he's 10) but the youngest one loved the kiddy rides (she's 4)

A quick smooth ferry ride from Toronto and you are suddenly in another world. I loved the little wooden houses, it was like stepping into another era! We stayed all day as it was such beautiful weather. I was so glad we stayed. Seeing the sunset with Toronto across the water was truly breathtaking.

If you're looking for a cute/romantic date with your S/O or if you're just looking for a bit of a getaway...Centre Island is a dream come true. Pack your picnic and bring a camera because you're in for a day in the park. Plus, if you're not interested in waiting in line for the ferry call for a water taxi!... More

The Centre Island is definitely a best kept secret. We had the best day out with kids and teenagers. It's fun, enjoyable and a great day out. It is the complete package from the ferry ride, the views of the skyline , lush park, beach , etc etc
