Create an itinerary including Toronto Island Park
Escape the busy downtown by visiting Toronto Island Park, where you can bask on pleasant beaches and explore several historical landmarks. The park's three small islands offer plenty of trails where you can stretch your legs and get some fresh air. Amusement rides ensure suitable entertainment for families with kids, while a lighthouse--the oldest landmark in the city--draws photographers, architecture fans, and history buffs. Other activities include cycling, canoeing, kayaking, and picnicking. Ferries accommodate recreational cyclists, but if you'd rather travel lightly, rent a bike on the main Centre Island.

  • The Ferry ride over to the islands is great. The old ferries have ambiance, and you get stunning views of Toronto's skyline. Then the islands themselves offer lots of different features including...

  • Great place to go away from city’s hustle bustle. Best time is going early as there’s less rush. Ferries start as early as 8 am and comes & goes every half an hour. Booking online saves time. A lot of picnic area, you can bring picnic baskets along. You can bring bikes in the ferry or rent ones on the island. Strollers a must for the kids. A lot of splash pads for kids. Amusement park and little farm is a must visit with little ones. Beach area is quite good in the hot summer day. You can also buy food there, from subway, pizza pizza etc, but it’s on the expensive side. Day well spent with family and friends.
  • Amazing place away from city’s hustle bustle. Great picnic spot! Toronto skyline view from ferry ride is a breath taking experience. Best time to return is close to sunset during summers. This will allow to have best skyline view compared to none! Lots to do at the island. If full day is too much for you, you might want to go by 4 pm to 9:30 pm. Both the time the ferry ride gives lovely view. I will return here again :)
  • Toronto Island Park is a nice park in Toronto Islands. It is accessible by a ferry from Toronto. Water taxis are also available. The best way to explore the park and the entire island is by a bike. One could carry their own bike in the ferry or rent one from the island. There are no cars in the island. It's nice to see beautiful houses at the island. The Toronto Island Park has fast-food joints like Pizza Pizza, Subway, and some restaurants. Overall, it's nice, but not extra special.
  • Great place to chill with a group of friends and/or family especially during Summer. The ferry experience is super nice with the beautiful Toronto skyline views. There are quite a few restaurants & ice cream trucks to eat at the Island. They also have picnic tables near the water front where you can have a picnic along the Skyline View. You can rent a bike and explore around all 3 islands. Definitely recommend to spend a day around here in the Summer.
  • Awesome spot for a picnic or just a nice long walk. I loved the ferry ride and how convenient it was to see the schedule and buy tickets online (you can also buy tickets at the ferry station). There are other services for Tourists, be sure to check online first.
