  • See Lake and the boat in front of the market or hold in the grassy area. In the summer's best walks. There were a lot of families. Limited skating rink skating rink in the winter, because rental shoes. City Hall before the link is small.

  • Always good to visit this place. Whole year book with lots of activities and events and most of them are free for everyone. Starting from food festival to music to skating to many more. Full of cultural and just the way it’s being organised keeping every detail intact it worth visiting here. Lakeside walk and music. Currently skating is highest interaction in this area with music. They provide heating area for skater which is badly missing at Nathan Phillips Square skating arena. Skate and get warm up. Good and drink option is near by another thing missing at Nathan Phillips Square. Sunset View is awesome and sound of water hitting the wood. Those birds and flight taking or landing at billy bishop airport. Totally worth it. Attached all photo and place is must go in my list
  • Great place to hangout down town. Centre island a ferry away. Various summer time activities and winter time skating. Open air movies also feature during the summer. Easily accessible by street car from Union or a short walk
  • Something for everyone here. Great place for couples, singles and very family friendly. Year-round event's and many activities to enjoy. A must see destination for anyone in the city. Highly recommended!
  • I love walking on the waterfront, so obviously, I love the Harbourfront Center! Very convenient, the rink and the Powerplant are great places to enjoy in the winter, but when the summer is coming, there is always so much to do there. The lake is providing some fresh air while you'll be enjoying a good pizza or even simply picnicking!
  • When in the hell is the renovation going to be completed. It does not take 5 years to complete to finish a project this size. It is not like they are building a new building. Have you run out of money for this project? If not get back on the project and finish off the work and make this a beautiful user friendly building. The pace of the work being done on this project is an utter joke.

Where to stay in Toronto

Most visitors stay in the historic neighborhood of Old Toronto, as the central district offers unparalleled access to the best attractions in the city and several metro stations within walking distance. If you're looking for a different taste of Toronto, stay in the trendy neighborhoods of West Queen West or King West Village, popular for their nightlife, arts, and cafe scenes. You can embrace Toronto's multicultural charms by staying in Chinatown, perhaps the city's best location for foodies.
