We spent a large part of a Saturday exploring this area. Great place to take the kids and get outdoor. Lots of walking and exploring or a lazy day spent on the beach of the lake. Bicycle rental available or bring your own on the ferry. An amusement park for kiddies take up a good portion on the center island.

The best way to enjoy the island is to take the water taxi there for $10 (vs. $7 for the ferry to avoid the lines). You can still take the ferry back from any of the ferry docks. Centre island is full of kids and has the most people. The more chill spots are on Ward's islands. You can walk... More

The ferry ride is great on the way back because you get to see the city from a different perspective. Centre Island is great if you have small children since there are a more attractions and activities for them. We had a great picnic at the Hanlan's Point, even though it was a bit crowded.

What can be better than a trip, a walk in the park and a swim on the beach on a hot summer day? The wait for tickets and the boats was about 30 minuten, so not that bad. One can easily walk from one stop to the next. Free maps available on the island.

We spent a few hours with our two little kids on the island. First of all we took the water taxi, which was 9 CAD per adult and 5 per child. The return with the ferry however is free and therefore it can get a little crowded on that boat, depending on your time of return. In the island park... More

My biggest tip for a visit to the island is to book the ferry ticket online in advance. It costs the same and you print off a ticket for use any day or time. I printed mine the week before our visit and then when we decided to go we walked straight past a very very long line for tickets.... More

Best trip of Toronto. Worth the effort to see as one of the most amazing islands I have seen so close to city. No developments on island, all park land and Pickwick spots.

The centre island is packed with families and children on sunny days. If you want more quietness, take the very to Wards Island or walk straight from centre island on the beautiful boardwalk to Wards island. And have a swim there.

Staying in Downtown West

Neighborhood Profile
Downtown West
Downtown West is home to Toronto's gorgeous Inner Harbor, and is a must-visit for lovers of art and the outdoors. The area's rich cultural heritage is celebrated by a number of monuments and museums, giving the neighborhood a mature feel. As a premier destination for modern art, people here stroll through the cool contemporary pieces at the Power Plant, enjoy the outdoor installations along Queen's Quay and Canoe Landing, and picnic among the zany designs of the Toronto Music Garden. The waterfront itself is often suffused with bikers and joggers, and the harbor is always packed with classic ships with masts raised. The vintage boats and ferries to the Toronto Islands make for a charming contrast against Downtown West's backdrop of skyscrapers, condos, and food trucks serving up hot, fresh fare to locals on the go. The area has a peaceful energy, and is popular with tourists and Torontonians alike.
