Very relaxing. A good way to get out of the city and feel like you are in nature. Water all around and a good long walk from end to end. You can rent a bike if you want as well.

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?

Response fromBruce_and_John|
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|
Response fromphpr|
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.
