“Nice place to spend a sunny afternoon”
Reviewed October 8, 2012

It's a nice and close-by escape from the buzz of the centre, with a lot of green, quiet paths, picnic areas and a little amusement park for very small children. There's also a small farm with animals. It's a nice visit if you want to be in the nature, but don't expect too much to see.

“Closes down after summer”
Reviewed October 7, 2012

It was a nice boat trip over and the gardens are quite nice and it's a great place to go for a bike ride but there was nothing open other than 1 cafe when we visited in late September. They said there was a casino there which we thought might be worth a look but could only find a big building that was closed and signs referring to it that were faded and broken. There's a beach there which looks like it would be good in summer.

“Peace and Quiet”
Reviewed October 5, 2012

We took the ferry over to the Island. This was very good.The Islands are really peaceful. The trees, flowers and wildlife beautiful. Take a picnic, sit and enjoy the stunning views. Great place to take some fantastic photos of the Toronto skyline.

“Beautiful”
Reviewed October 2, 2012

We took the ferry over and spent an afternoon on the island. Although alot of the attractions were closed for the season, the gardens were still beautiful. We rented a tandem bike and explored the island that way - fun!

“peaceful and a nice chnage from the city hustle and bustle”
Reviewed October 2, 2012

When family from ouit of town comes to visit, I like to take them on the boat tours around the idland and then get off, go for a nice walk and see Toronto skyline from a short distance. No one has ever been disappointed. Lots of nature like birds, children laughing and playing...feel good day
