Easy to get to from the ferry. We rented bikes and explored .Lots of quaint houses and places to picnic. It is great for a sunny afternoon to get away from the hustle and bustle.

A large green space away from the frenzy city and it's cars. The fact that the park is only accessible by boat makes it the ideal place to spend a relaxed day with your family or friends either riding bikes, sunbathing, picnic or other activities that takes advantage of the natural area site.

Took a ferry across to the islands for a walk and to get some photos looking back towards the city. We got dropped off at Hanlon's Point and walked around to Ward's Island at the other side. Relaxing walk on a sunny day. We didn't really check anything out on the island as we had to be back in the... More

This is a great place to spend the day, if you are shopped out in the City. There are two ways of getting out there a water taxi or the ferry. The ferry is a quarter of the cost of the water taxi. On the island we hired bikes and had great fun

Season is almost over in September. But on a sunny September Sunday crowdes of people were passing over to the island. Most of them families with kids. It gave me a little impression of Toronto's people. The island itself is clean, colourful, ideal for walking and other sports, and you have an incretible view on Toronto's skyline.

Easy to get to via the main ferry which is the best value way to travel across. Lot's to do if you like the outdoors e.g. bikes, walks, beach and there's a nudist beach i you like that sort of thing (mainly over-weight men!).

It was a fun afternoon out in the sunshine. We got off at Ward's Island and walked along the paths all the way to the lighthouse. Ward's was very cute with a nice cafe and we enjoyed the gardens, bridges, Franklin's garden, and beaches. Things were very quiet as it was a weekday afternoon in the fall so the amusement... More
