This is an oasis right in the city. First of all, you get an extraordinary view of the Toronto skyline for a $5 or $6 ferry ride (round trip!); great photo opportunities. The whole island has three ferry docks. We only got off at Centre Island. The island, as a whole, has a few residents, no cars, offers several different... More

Spent a lovely day here. It is such a quiet little idyll only minutes from a very busy city. We visited off season, and there was not much open. It is lovely just to walk around. During the summer there is a little fun fair and I think they do open theatre as well. There are some play parks and... More

It's worth to go just to see Toronto from other side. It's calm and relax. Probably during summer there are a lot of people,but on lazy sunday morning in the end of September there were only few people there.

If you like natural spaces near a big city, Toronto Island Park is a great place to visit. There are several islands, some not permitted to have people (to protect wildlife). There is a nice beach, a couple of food places, a fountain, and lots of grass areas where you are invited to "step on it". It's a nice place... More

I'm skeptical of places that look too "touristy", so I went reluctantly to Toronto Island Park, but it was well worth the visit. Lots of walking trails with bike rentals available if you want to cover more ground. There are a few food choices and lots of green space. Also a great place to take pictures of downtown Toronto from... More

Who would have thought that there was a beach over here as well as an amusement park and beautiful flowers and shrubbery! Worth a visit.

We were lucky to have a good warm but overcast day for our trip to the island. Lovely walks and must be the best views of the city you can get from the ferry

Wait for the night to set and appreciate the Toronto skyline from the shores of the island! Visit the beaches on the other side and bring some food and drinks - restaurants and bars only open during summer season.

The park is big and the view of the lake is just gorgeous! There are a lot of things to do as well. "amusement park" for kids, restaurants. I only got to go to the center park, but there are actually quite a few parks. I heard that the food was good too. Unfortunately, the restaurants close so early, before... More

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.
