If you don't know which boat to take, go on the central island one. This is where the main attractions are: amusement park and small farm for kids, pier, main beach with changing rooms, restaurants and bike rentals. It takes an hour walk to get to the west (wards, 2.5km) or east (hanlan, 3.5km) sides of the island where the... More

Just a good idea to spend a leisurely day when you're in Toronto. The boatride to get to the island is very nice. On the island you can rent a bike (we rented a four-person bike, which was hilarious!) and tour the island. Great views of the Toronto skyline from the island!

I went on the island on February and it was pretty amazing. The frozen beach is a very beautiful sight. If you're going on the winter be sure to bring some food because the shops are closed. But yeah what a view, and all that for a small ferry fee.

loved the park and all the grounds….rides and amusement area would be perfect for little kids. Ours were 12 and 11 and were a little old for the rides they offered. Our kids loved climbing the trees and playing in the park.

After reading the reviews about visiting this place, my family and I took a trip to Toronto/Niagara Falls ON. Along the way we journeyed to the Island Parks and boy, we were not disappointed. A pleasurable play to be for both adults and children!!!

Ferry price is quite cheap and was just the start of the day. We dined at the Carousel Café and the food was cooked very well and service was good. We rented bikes and spent a couple of hours zipping around the bike paths. The wooden boardwalk gives some great views of the lake and then on the north side... More

We walked to the Queens quay from our hotel in the morning and had breakfast there. We were talking to another customer there and he said we that he owned a nearby bike shop (Wheel Excitement on Queens Quay. ) We ended up renting our bikes from him and taking them across on the ferry. We were glad we did.... More
