“Great place to visit”
Reviewed February 22, 2013

This tranquil little island is a gem to find. If you visit in winter, wrap up as it is freezing cold. In summer, you can enjoy cycling or walking the island. We ate at the Rectory Cafe, which was wonderful. Very short ferry ride to and from the mainland.

“One of the best kept secrets that everyone knows about”
Reviewed February 19, 2013

Most Torontonians don't really appreciate how unique a space this is. Take kids to the park, go for a long walk, rent a tandem bike, go to the beach, go to the nude beach, go rollerblading without a ton of traffic... The list of activities is endless. The biggest hint is to pre-purchase your tickets during the week to completely skip the weekend lineups.

“An Island Picnicker's Paradise”
Reviewed February 18, 2013

Take a blanket, and pack your picnic basket. Nothing better than a day on the island. Be sure to rent a bike and check out the whole place ... like the whole place.

“Great day out from the city!”
Reviewed February 12, 2013 via mobile

A great escape! Delightful day out from the city, especially when it's hot. Try to go in the week, as the ferry and the islands are really packed at weekends. We hired a cool 2-person trike with a canopy - sit back and relax as you pedal, a lovely way to get around the park. There are very nice cafes.
