I swear along with everything else in this city going down the toilet so is the Toronto Island. First the trip there, that ferry needs an overhaul, the outdated ticketing system, the long line ups and the ppl shoving and pushing to get on and...More
We visit the island park by ferry which we enjoyed, lots of places to eat , beach and lots of green spaces for a picnic. Lockers at the changing stations allow you to put your dry clothes in a safe place.Beware of the sun as...More
Toronto Island is very nice. We have to take Ferry from Toronto to the Island. But if you are going to go to Toronto Island on holiday or for a weekend trip, you'll wait a lot of time to take the Ferry. When you take...More
The Toronto Island is beautiful, idyllic, and serene. However, be careful when you go, as crowds make it less so. Long waits for the Ferry happen on holiday weekends. You could walk over to the docks and take a water taxi, but better to go...More
Although there is not that much to do in November, it was sunny so we decided to take the ferry anyways. It was still a really nice walk and the city view from islands is really worth seeing. Lovely, quiet beaches and really nice and...More
Going to Toronto Island Park is one of the must do's in Toronto. If you have had enough of the hustle and bustle, take the 10 minute ferry ride over to the island and just walk. Such a great option for those who can't leave...More
My primary purpose was to capture the Toronto Skyline and the islands did not disappoint The short ferry are also enjoyable and provide a good view of the islands and the city. Good place to hike and there are kids play area too.
The trip with the boat to get at the island is very quick. Just 10 minutes and not expensive. Reasonable price.
When you get there is simply astonishing how much hey take care of the park, everything is clean.
The area with all the animals...More
City strike - Any private ferries to Toronto Islands Park? (3 Replies)
I read in another thread that there are private ferries to the Toronto Islands Park. Can anyone tell me their contact info? Will they allow dogs? Is it even worth going to Toronto Islands Park now that the city is on strike? How's the city doing during this strike?

Hi, ninjamyst; Not sure about the dogs. Here is the link to a previous thread with contact info: tripadvisor.com/ShowTopic-g155019-i55-k28971… The islands are definitely worth a visit, strike or not. Just be aware that the park washrooms will be closed as they are operated by City Parks. Other than some unmowed lawns in parks & some overflowing trash bins, you probably won't notice the effects of the strike. As for those who live here, well, let's just say it's times like...More
Toronto Islands (7 Replies)
We have an extra day downtown during our July vacation and are considering what to do. Someone suggested we take the ferry to the islands to see the Toronto skyline. I have checked the forum, looked up the Toronto Islands and map. I haven't been able to find much on how big it is and what walking distances would be. From the map it looks like best city line view for a photo would be ferry to the Center Island ferry dock. Is that correct? How far of a walk to the beach from there? Being...More

It's about a 10 minute walk from the ferry docks to the beach. Absolutely if it's a good day weather-wise, the Islands are a great place to be.
Toronto Islands in the Winter (6 Replies)
Is it worth visiting the Toronto Islands in the winter, the beginning of March?
February 13, 2018|
There are few facilities open in winter, and the ferry only goes to Wards ... the residential area of the islands. It's worth going to take photos of downtown, and perhaps have a stroll around, but otherwise there isn't much over there in winter.
