“Fantastic Family Fun Day”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 5, 2013

I spent 2 days on the island (avoiding the Nudist beach at the north of the island) visiting the fun park, old houses, and east beach where we swam and sailed model boats.
The weather was in our favor and we had an awesome time, the kids fun fair was absolutely amazing with adult rides shrunken down to kids level my 4 year old road the roller coaster, rocket ships, pirate ship and much much more. People were amazingly friendly and the walks were beautiful and clean.

If you're in Toronto and you have some time to yourself The Island is a Must !

“Fun for everyone!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 5, 2013

I love going to Toronto Island!! The ferry isn't to expensive and departs regularly. There are several different parks you can walk through and explore. There's a couple of different restaurants that have great menu items!! The Carousel Café is a personal favorite! If you've got young kids, take them to the amusement park, which is lots of fun! Some great points of interest are the Franklin Children's Garden (which as adults we had fun going through), the Gibraltar Point Lighthouse, Wading Pool, Amazing Maze and more!! You can also rent a bike and explore the island faster and take it all in. Take in a day at the beach but it's best to bring a picnic to avoid high food costs. Toronto Island is a definite must!

“Follow the crowd "to the beach"”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 4, 2013

Catch a ferry over to the island for a days fun on the beach. Brave the queue to get onto the ferry it is worth it. There is a large park and sandy beach. A few fast food stops such as Pizza and drinks. Better to pack a picnic. You can rollerblade too if you are so inclined.

“Lovely walk”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 2, 2013

We had a lovely walk on a sunny day in the week. There were few families about, ti was mainly adults out for a walk in the sunshine. it was very quiet.
We couldn't hire a bike, as the ID required was health card or driving licence, and as foreign travellers, we were not carrying anything other than cards or hotel documents and they wouldn't accept these. This was a shame, as we had waited for them to open.
