Polson Pier, previously known as The Docks Waterfront Entertainment Complex or The Docks, is a multi-purpose entertainment venue in Toronto, Ontario. It is located in largely industrial Port Lands area of the city along the shore of Toronto Harbour.Polson Pier is also home of the Sound Academy, which is a concert hall/nightclub with a capacity of 3,230 occupants over 13240sqft of floor space. A balcony is located above.The site is also home to an extensive amusement area, with facilities for go karts, rock climbing, swimming, mini golf, beach volleyball, and a driving range.The Lakeview Drive-In is located at the far end of the driving range that is used during the day. The site is converted into a drive-in theater at sunset. It is the only drive-in movie theatre in downtown Toronto. Open on summer weekends, the drive-in can accommodate up to 1200 people and 500 vehicles.In 1999 there was discussion that ferries from the Toronto Ferry Services should depart from a landing at the Docks.On July 24, 2006 the Alcohol and Gaming Commission of Ontario revoked the Docks' liquor licence. This was the culmination of a 10-year-long dispute with the Toronto Islands' residents regarding excessive noise. On July 28, 2006 the Court of Appeal for Ontario judge granted a stay, pending an appeal heard January, 2007. By the summer of 2008, the complex had been sold to new owners who took measures to appease its neighbours, including ending all-night parties and soundproofing its indoor venue.
Poison Pier is just one of the many highlights you can arrange to see using our custom trip planner, Toronto Edition.
