Toronto Island Park occupies the harbor islands opposite the downtown area; accessible only from the Jack Layton Ferry Terminal at 9 Queens Quay W., at the foot of Bay St. If driving, park at Bay St. and Lakeshore or on Queens Quay between Bay and York; if not, take the Bay Street bus (No. 6) or the 509 Harbourfront or 510 Spadina streetcar. Transportation on and around the islands is by open-air trams, rental bicycles, quadracycles, canoes and rowboats. The park consists of three main sections—Hanlan's Point, Centre Island and Wards Island—along with several smaller islands.
