Toronto Islands is a wonderful place for a day's getaway. Take the ferry, walk, bike, swim at Ward's beach, take the kids to Centreville. Gorgeous hikes, good canoeing, pretty and peaceful. Be polite, people live there.

Sure it's a nice little ferry ride and there's a great view of Toronto skyline . Because of the high water level of Lake Ontario the Islands are partly flooded and some of the attractions may remain closed for a little while . I suggest reading the local papers for updates . Currently there's a new tourist attraction on the... More

Caution; Most of the islands are flooded right now. Tourists cannot go to the islands for several weeks. This is a pity as there are great walks, beaches and entertainment for children there. However nothing is available now. Extreme caution advised

The Toronto Islands are like a forest within the City. The Islands are owned by the City of Toronto as are the ferries that bring you back and forth from the City waterfront to these beautiful islands. The most popular island is CENTRE ISLAND as it has restaurants, children's rides and attractions and a small train that travels around for... More

Scenic but soggy. Island is flooded, under a foot of water. Locals are water-logged and ornery. Stay away! Far away.

You can stroll, rent a bike, sunbathe or sip wine on the Toronto Islands. A short ferry ride across the lake and into another world! A very relaxing escape from cars and skyscrapers too. Lovely venue for taking skyline photos of the Big Smoke.

It was an ok experience. Very long lines to get on the boat. Many interesting things to see on the island. Impressive view when planes take off, especially when you are on the boat.

Staying in Downtown West

Neighbourhood Profile
Downtown West
Downtown West is home to Toronto's gorgeous Inner Harbor, and is a must-visit for lovers of art and the outdoors. The area's rich cultural heritage is celebrated by a number of monuments and museums, giving the neighborhood a mature feel. As a premier destination for modern art, people here stroll through the cool contemporary pieces at the Power Plant, enjoy the outdoor installations along Queen's Quay and Canoe Landing, and picnic among the zany designs of the Toronto Music Garden. The waterfront itself is often suffused with bikers and joggers, and the harbor is always packed with classic ships with masts raised. The vintage boats and ferries to the Toronto Islands make for a charming contrast against Downtown West's backdrop of skyscrapers, condos, and food trucks serving up hot, fresh fare to locals on the go. The area has a peaceful energy, and is popular with tourists and Torontonians alike.
