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.
