AAA Editor Notes
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. Highlights include a boardwalk, beaches, bathhouses, boating lagoons, gardens, play areas, sports facilities, fishing, rides, wading pools, tennis, volleyball, bicycle rentals, tram tours, rowboats, canoes, disc golf and a pony ride. Of interest are Centreville Amusement Park, Avenue of the Islands Gardens, Franklin Children's Garden and Gibraltar Point Lighthouse, one of Toronto's oldest landmarks.
Pets on leash are allowed. Picnicking is permitted. Food is available.
