  • Cool place. There's always something going on here, whether it's a cultural event, or art displays/performances. Easy to get to by transit, and near the lake. It's easy to go for a walk by the lake after stopping by here. Volunteer-run. They've also got a free skating rink out back, and a cafe where you can grab food and drinks.
  • Living in a busy city such as Toronto that is forever expanding and being built up, Harbourfront offers a welcome sense of serenity. I've spent a lifetime growing up attending events held by the water and now am continuing the tradition. No matter the season, there is always what to do, whether enjoying shows, vendors, special exhibitions or just the lapping sound of the water, this is one of the most beautiful locations within the city.
  • This place is facinating, it is full of kiosks selling organic honey, baked goods, clothing and lots more. There are bars, restaurants boat rides and above all free live music. We enjoyed our visit after leaving the car in a parking across the street. Finding bathrooms was hard but we went to the restaurant and also had a good meal. My son was particularly impressed by the Toronto Skyline.
  • It's a great place to go to even when there is nothing much going on. My son and I took our dog Molly for a walk and it was fun just walking around and meeting other dogs! The view is great!
  • A great place during summers but even better during winter when it freezes. You can do an ice walk but be careful with the ice. They have nice ice skating park there and many eateries to try for food enthusiast. Great place to hang out with friends or even with a date or loved ones.
