I've been going to Centre Island since the mid 60's and while it is WAY more crowded, its charm has not diminished. There is something for every age group and income bracket. While heavily advertized as a ride attraction featuring a log ride , merry-go-round, antique cars, train and mini ferris wheel, there are other equally fun and free things... More

This was one of our first places we visited when we initially moved to Canada 3 years ago. It is a nice place however we felt the staff was not very friendly at all. There is a ferry ride that takes you to the Island. Once on the island, you will notice that there are several restaurants, vendor stalls, flowers... More

This is a fantastic place to enjoy the beautiful weather and outdoor life. Lots of walking trails, picnic spots, and beatiful views. Park with rides is fun.

I love going to Centre Island. Theres lots of walking, tanning, exploring, and swimming to do! I think there are also rides for the little ones (the last time I went was late summer and theyd already shut down for the season). I enjoyed it very much and can't wait to go back in the summer when everything is open.

The staff does not care about what customers feel and ignore you big time! Variety is absent and "Buy this now and get lost quick or after half hour this would be sold out as well" Well, no wonder most of the visitors to the Island come with their own food!!

Wonderful place where you can spend the whole day. There's a nice amusement park (best for kids 12 and under), a farm, a beach and etc.

This is a great attraction, especially for little ones, start off with an awesome fairy ride across the lake, then we stopped off at the pony rides. Who doesn't like pony rides? Then the real fun starts with rides, rides, and more rides. The kiddies just love it here, and the park is very clean. Bring a picnic lunch too,... More

Its a nice place for picnic for those looking out for some fun and peace both at one time. A ferry takes you from the rush of the city to a nice and calm place. you would find rides for children, food stalls with a variety of food and the last corner a perfect view of Ontario lake for the... More

When I think of summer in Toronto, I think of Centre Island. The ferry ride ($7 round trip for adults) is a nice way to see the Toronto harbour skyline and feel like you're leaving the city for an island paradise. Once there, Centreville is a popular spot to go on rides and eat carnival food. There are also plenty... More
