We were biking around the island and found it along the route. It was closed so we couldn't go inside it. There is a plaque explaining the historical aspect of the lighthouse. It was nice to get a few photos. Nice design, well maintained and...More

This is the second oldest lighthouse in Canada and Toronto's oldest building. If you are lucky there is a great ghost story associated with it and it is told well in a spooky location. A fun piece of history.

As part of my walk along the islands, I came to Gibraltar Point lighthouse. It now sits well inland after years of service. It’s also possibly haunted - I didn’t hang around too long just in case.

Ok, if you are passing it’s worth having a look otherwise don’t go out of your way. Small lighthouse with a plaque on the wall telling a short history of the building. Would have been nice to go up it but unfortunately it is not...More

Really is not much to see and not so special point, but if you walk from one part to another on this island you can see it too.

Not really a site worth going out of the way for, it is more of an anachronism than anything. It does add to the character of the Toronto Islands, though this is more of an oddity.

Each summer when I am in Toronto I walk past the lighthouse going from Hanlon's Point to Center Island or Ward's Island. A nice walk when the weather is nice.

You can quickly see this when walking from Hanlon's to Wards or vice versa. Not really much to see except take a quick photo. There is a bit of interesting history on a placard.

We visited the islands the first day they were open again. I really wanted to see the lighthouse but when we arrived the area around it was flooded. There was tape up so we couldn't go near it. Such a shame that we couldn't even...More
