The park was ok, it's not my favourite place though, maybe it's because we didn't get the chance to bike around or feed the birds or go on any of the rides. I can't complain about the environment and the scenery or the beaches, but if you don't like kid rides or biking, there really aren't a lot to do... More

I took the narrated harbor cruise with off and on privileges at Centre Island. There is lots to do at the Island - amusement park, restaurants, beaches, bike rentals, and walking paths. The views from the islands of the City were incredibly beautiful.

Take the TTC to the Ferry and let someone else do the driving for a change. Take a book along the way as the TTC is clean and quiet with new street cars and subways and excellent Toronto invention. Get a map of the Island, as there is something to do for everyone. Pack a lunch or enjoy some of... More

Centre Island is a short, 10 minute ferry ride and then you reach a tranquil and peaceful island with lots of walking trails and beautiful scenery. For the kids there is a large splash pad and the beach as well as centre-ville. The rides at centre-ville are old and not exciting but at least you have some rides to distract... More

Short trip as we had theatre tickets for the evening. Beautiful place Highly recommend the ferry trip acroos; gives great views of the Toronto skyline with fabulous photo opportunities. Boat staff very knowledgeable. Wish we'd had more time to explore these islands.

As usual, so many places in Toronto could be updated, however, having said that, when in Rome, do as the Romans. There is a beach on the wards island side..some private spots too. The water is brilliant for a big city, and the sunset is remarkable! There is a bar/restaurant on the side of the dock where the center island... More

By foot, or especially by bike, a trek to Centre Island is a great way to experience the waterfront of this great city. Experience fantastic views of the skyline while you take the ferry and traverse the island. The weekday that I was there it wasn't busy at all. I felt I had the whole island to myself to bike...

Even though it was a Saturday and the ferry was packed, once you get on this island, you feel like you are one of the only people here. Loved our stay even though we only had two hours. Recommend taking the Center Island Ferry and returning on the Ward Island ferry.
