Create an itinerary including Toronto Island Park
Escape the busy downtown by visiting Toronto Island Park, where you can bask on pleasant beaches and explore several historical landmarks. The park's three small islands offer plenty of trails where you can stretch your legs and get some fresh air. Amusement rides ensure suitable entertainment for families with kids, while a lighthouse--the oldest landmark in the city--draws photographers, architecture fans, and history buffs. Other activities include cycling, canoeing, kayaking, and picnicking. Ferries accommodate recreational cyclists, but if you'd rather travel lightly, rent a bike on the main Centre Island.

  • Catch the ferry over to the island and get some great views when you look back to Toronto city's skyline. It was so nice to get away from the noise, people and have a relaxing walk from one end...

  • Great surprise on sunny afternoon. Moving towards off season. Enjoyed the Island Cafe and walked on the boardwalk until we no longer could. Would love to go back in season and grab some bikes to see.....  more

  • Great place to go away from city’s hustle bustle. Best time is going early as there’s less rush. Ferries start as early as 8 am and comes & goes every half an hour. Booking online saves time. A lot of picnic area, you can bring picnic baskets along. You can bring bikes in the ferry or rent ones on the island. Strollers a must for the kids. A lot of splash pads for kids. Amusement park and little farm is a must visit with little ones. Beach area is quite good in the hot summer day. You can also buy food there, from subway, pizza pizza etc, but it’s on the expensive side. Day well spent with family and friends.
  • Amazing place away from city’s hustle bustle. Great picnic spot! Toronto skyline view from ferry ride is a breath taking experience. Best time to return is close to sunset during summers. This will allow to have best skyline view compared to none! Lots to do at the island. If full day is too much for you, you might want to go by 4 pm to 9:30 pm. Both the time the ferry ride gives lovely view. I will return here again :)
