  • Great spot in downtown TO to have a quick picnic or enjoy the sunset. There are plenty of fast food places around the centre or bring your own and enjoy the waterfront. Good place for kids to run around a bit, despite there not being a playground.
  • Loved this place. Have been a few times. Once for the kids field trip which was on kite building. Another time I took a whole gaggle of kids to the 1812 festival they had for free. Also they have some unique restaurants and shopping. Right by the water and the tall ships dock here to. Took my friends from Calgary, they loved it also. Depending on what activity is going on this place can be calm, or wild and full of fun! I have been to organic food festivals, music festivals shopping etc. The favorite part for the kids is the pawsitively pets section at the end where they like to pose for pics on the giant animal statutes! They also had a very interesting rolling wood sidewalk the kids had a blast on. Definitely lots to explore!
  • Queen Queen was redone a couple of years ago and has become a great place to walk, ride your bike or go for dinner or glass of wine at the many cool places that line the street. There are trees and benches to sit on so that you may enjoy the sights and view of the lake. This location is a great place to visit during the day or in the evening.
  • Lovely place. Tranquility all around during weekdays. Looks ready for noisy concerts in front of luxurious bayfront buildings
  • Great scenery. Great food in a large variety of different restaurants nearby. Great place to hang out that is in the city but does not feel like downtown Toronto
