Centre Island

Great for kids to spend a day outside enjoying the rides and treats, and little train. Very relaxing for the adults that take them.

Centre Island - Be prepared to wait in a bit of a line for the ferry boat, and potentially have your heels ran over by a few tires from bicycles or strollers, but its well worth the momentary discomfort! Centre Island is about as close to the Garden of Eden you can get traveling North. Bring a blanket and have... More

We love to take visitors to Centre Island but it surprises me how many residents have ever been. Our grandchildren love it but so do we. The ride over on the ferry does cost you but the park is free. You can walk, bike and boat your way around the park. Splash pools, the beach (on Lake Ontario) and an... More

Really enjoyed our visit to the island. It's possible to walk to Ward Island from here, and this is recommended.

Great way to spend a day. Have a picnic, go for a walk, bike around, visit the amusement park in the summer. There a couple of good places to eat too. One of our favourite places in the city.

We visited this place as a group with friends. Many events happen here like the Car Festival of Lord Jagannath. You have a variety of activities to do. On holidays the place is densely populated but it never seems over crowded.

We took the ferry to the Central Island on a beautiful summer afternoon. At that time the ferry($) was almost empty, so plenty of room to sit or stand to watch the skyline of downtown TO. After a short ride we got off on Central Island dock and walked over to the Olympic Island for some great photos of downtown... More
