The Toronto Island Park is very green, well maintained and has good beaches, and fun for the entire family. It is almost always busy so expect line ups at the Ferry Dock. Leaving early for the island can expedite your travel time. And if you...More
We visit Toronto Island every summer, it is a great place to spend a day with an entire family, stay on the beach or ride a bike (you can rent a bike or bring your own), or just have a picnic in the beautiful nature....More
So much to do at the island, so much to see. Great beautiful parks, Canada geese, kids playgrounds and games, great for biking, just can't say enough about this place. The ferry ride over gives an amazing view of the harbourfront skyline. Drawback: Summer crowds...More

Though entire Toronto boasts of parks , flowers and landskaped greenery, this is an outstanding place for spending the day. Located within lake Ontario the layout, grass lawns, trees, fountains and flowers keep you enchanted. There are other attractions within , I could not visit...More
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.
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.
