Definitely one of the tourist attractions you shouldn't miss when you're visiting Toronto. Here you can see the skyline view of Toronto city along with the CN Tower and Rogers Centre. If you are a nature buff, or if you just want to chill and breathe fresh air, this is the place to be.

A short ferry ride away, this park has loads of space to explore and you can rent a bike (ID required!) to do so. There's a kids play area in addition to the masses of space, along with a couple of restaurants (nothing fancy); also some more formal gardens, fountains and a couple of beaches. Worth a trip.

Centre Island is an excellent family place. There is a very good little children amusement park. You also get to enjoy a fun ferry ride to and from the Island. I highly recommend this place for everyone.

I guess this is not our kind of place, but even then I'd have expected at least a couple more places to sit down and have a drink or a snack.

Centre Island is a nice to visit for families with young kids. Lots of space to run around, a small zoo , a garden maze , a beach of sorts , amusement rides and boats of different types to wander around the water/lakes. The ferry costs about Cad 25.00 . I think it is better to take the ferry that... More

Me and my husband discovered this place existed while on a boat ride near the waterfront, so we took our friends who we were holidaying with to the island with us. We paid for the water taxi there but got the free ferry back. There was an area with rides and snacks places creating a mini theme park, there were... More

This is a must visit attraction in Toronto, suitable for all the family. Take the ferry to the island and spend a day there. Kids will enjoy a variety of kid-specific attractions in Center Ville including a bice petting zoo, while adults enjoy the beautiful gardens and green areas. You can rent a bicycle or a canoe and there are... More

When you need a break from the hustle and heat of the city, catch the ferry over to Centre Island. You'll enjoy the cool breezes while getting the most spectacular view of the downtown skyline. There is a small amusement park for the kiddies and beautiful paths to stroll or bike along. if you are up to a longer walk,... More

We visit Toronto regularly and going to Center Island is a fun, VERY local trip for the family. Do not be intimidated by the big crowds at the ticket lines - it moves quickly (and I believe that you can buy tickets on-line, so if you can do it beforehand, that would be good but not essential). The ferry ride... More
