“Beautiful place”
Reviewed June 27, 2013

I would not hesitate to recommend that you visit the island's the ferry doesn't take long and with a picnic in tow it is the most amazing place. My brother lives in Toronto and suggested we shoudl go for a relaxing day, we got some sandwiches and juice and took off early to avoid the crowds as it was a glorious day. The park and benches is lovely and we set for ages just taking the the air and the atmosphere and then we went along the board walk to the beech that was stunning. It is a gorgeous place and i would recommende anyone to go here and have a wander you will not be dissapointed.

Peaceful with a beach and nice walks or hire a bike and cycle round the islands. Take a picnic and enjoy the park.

“Tranquility”
Reviewed June 25, 2013

A lovely peaceful haven just a short ferry ride ($7 return) from Toronto Waterfront. 3 ferries to choose from - out by one, walk, back by another - a great day out when the sun shines

“Beautiful island to explore”
Reviewed June 24, 2013

This island is accessed by a short ferry ride ($7 round trip). It is worth spending 4-6 hours. There is an amusement park for young children, a beach, areas for boating, bike rentals, walking trails, feeding ducks (bring bread) and more.

“A Hidden Jewel”
Reviewed June 23, 2013

I have been to Toronto a number of times and never even knew about this getaway island. For $4 a ferry takes you on a 15 min ride to the island and you really feel like you are waiting for Jessica Lang to pop out on a bicycle. Lots of beaches and picnic areas without a shortage of beautiful views and horticulture. I rented a bike and went around the entire island - what a great adventure!
