A great little side trip to recharge without having to go to far. A short ferry ride, $7.00 round trip, and you wouldn't know but you have driven to the country. Was over there, just this past Sunday, 04/12/15, so there wasn't a lot of competition for space, practically deserted. I would imagine it is much different in the summer,... More

Ditch the car, the suit jacket, tie and in some places, your shoes and socks...and only in one particular spot, ditch everything! NB: Recommended only at certain times of the year and be aware that airplanes do pass overhead to and from the Island airport and that boats can park in the vicinity. Make no mistake. This is still a... More

This is a nice park to escape the city and when you get there by boat you get a great sight of Toronto looking back at it . Best way to see it is to hire a bike as it is a a large area to walk . Well worth a visit

Easy to get to, lots of boats throughout the day, can stay as long or as short a time as you want. Excellant views of the Toronto skyline which is stunning. As we visited at the beginning of April we didn't get access to all the islands but the one we got to was ample. Great little park for the... More

The islands are my favourite way to escape the hustle and bustle of the city. The center island beach is definitely the most popular but is usually very crowded. If you walk a bit to towards the lighthouse, or head to ward's island you can find even better beaches with half as many people. I also recommend renting one of... More

I never knew about the Toronto islands until a friend of mine who lived here suggested it. You need to take a ferry to get over here, but they come at the top and bottom of every hour, so it's okay if you plan things out right. The island is a beautiful park that rivals the feeling of almost any... More

Wards Island Ferry does accept bikes on weekends, so you can simply bike to Centre Island. It is a smooth paved road with only specially licensed vehicles using it...perfect for biking with the kids. Buy your ferry tickets earlier in the week to save the torment of long lines on the weekends. Can pay for ride on private shuttles or... More

Went here out of season everywhere close would be better in the summer time but want we did see in the small amount of time here I enjoy. Great place to bike rise play football and have lunch or just relax from the stress of the city life.

A gorgeous retreat from city life. A quick trip on a ferry, then a large green island awaits, beach and forest in one trip. My spirit feels revived every time I visit. Tip, bring a bike from the city- better value than hiring on the island- if you plan to cycle for more than an hour. Great venue for a... More
