Visiting the Toronto Harbor Islands and park is my best experience in Toronto. We took the ferry ($7 for adults, free on the way back) to the islands in the late afternoon. The view of the downtown from the island is absolutely gorgeous. The part of the island we went (central) has a small amusement park, a farm/zoo, nice landscaped... More

While the Centerville Amusement Park area packs people like sardines, the rest of the Toronto Island Park does not fare much better either. GETTING THERE USING TORONTO FERRY: The Toronto Ferry ride is very uncivilized. Way too many people feel like they are entitled to become rude and cut-in-line when they have a baby stroller in their party. People from... More

This was an amazing ferry boat ride to an incredibly beautiful peaceful island. I was sad to leave! This is a must see, take the kids to the park and rides, or take a stroll as a couple. I hired a quad bike with my partner, giggled and laughed the whole time. Loved it!

Lovely day out. Bring a picnic and swimming costume for the beach or hire a bike for the day. Great photos taken from the taxi boat of Toronto skyline. Children will love the farm animals, my favourite was the butterfly house.

There is something for everyone on the Island, we visited the zoo, the beach, took a train ride and had a nice drink. It was a very pleasant afternoon in the sun.

took the ferry to the islands, with a great view of toronto - the islands are similar to English parks in London, peaceful and quite within minuets of the city centre, took the island trolley tour for a relaxing trip around the islands and also walked along the board walk, there are plenty of cafes and coffee stops too, although...

A short ferry boat ride to the island took us to the island park. We loved the well kept gardens, luna park and animal farm. Beautiful views of Toronto.

Next time I come to Toronto I will be staying as close as I possibly can to here so I can spend all my time in this park. Avoid the concession stands--they're a rip off. Head a little further and towards where the living spaces are. Still overpriced for mediocre food and experience but far better than the concession stands.

Take the public ferry or a water taxi. This is an easy island to walk around in 3 or 4 hours. The bike rental place was busy, but lots of families were renting quad-bikes (for four) and having fun riding around the island on the paved paths - basically no cars on the island except for a handful of service...
