Harbourfront Centre - Review

With 450 organisations organising more than 4000 events annually, this open air center, park and marina is Toronto’s cultural heart. These events cover theatre, dance, festivals, skating, literature, music, concerts, film, visual arts, food, and craft. Most of these take place in venues such as:

  • Artport Gallery
  • Fleck Dance Theatre
  • The Power Plant Contemporary Art Gallery
  • Harbourfront Stage
  • Natrel Rink - outdoor skating rink
  • Lakeview Market
  • World Cafe
  • Toronto Music Garden - a delightful concept landscaping project, this garden was design by cellist Yo Yo Ma and landscape designer Julie Moir Messervy as a physical reflection of Baroque Era composer Bach’s Suite No. 1 in G Major for unaccompanied cello, BWV 1007. It is a popular concert space in summer.
  • Lakeside Terrace
  • Miss Lou's Room Craft & Design
  • The Tall Ship Kajama
  • Simcoe Wavedeck - a 2.6 meter high wooden deck curved to imitate high waves.
  • Purina Pawsway - a pet center dedicated to pets and pet lovers, focusing primarily on cats and dogs.
  • HTO park - this is an urban beach park of long sands, shady yellow umbrellas, green lawns, playful layout, a boardwalk and wide views of the waterfront.

Safe to say, it’s very hard to be bored around here. Even if you don’t actually go into an event, the Waterfront Trail is a entertaining walking and people watching area.

Harbourfront Centre, Toronto Reviews

  • Taking class there which is super great! Amazing environment! It's relaxing, informative and really doesn't restrict creativity! But one star off because I feel like they need more events happening there. It's such a great space and I feel like it's being wasted. Hopefully they can find a way to jazz it up a bit. Otherwise, can be super nice when there are just the right amount of people hanging around.

  • They really Revitalize this place over the years. My favorite time to go is in the early evening on those warm summer months. This place is green when the weather cooperates as it's known to get significantly cooler by the lake. I would always encourage anyone who is visiting his place to pack a light jacket in case it gets cooler than expected. Other than that, I would highly encourage anyone was not been here to pay a visit I don't think you'll be disappointed

  • A great place for a summer stroll along the waterfront and always something happening. Last time I walked by Susan Aglukark was playing and we caught her outdoor concert on the Harbourfront Stage. It was awesome! Nothing like a beautiful moon and the boats on the lake. One of the best places in Toronto to visit, any time of year, again and again. There’s always a new exhibit, performance or festival to see. Highly recommended!

  • Great place to visit and spend some time on the harbour front by the lakeshore. Many events take place here during the year specially in the summer. Perfect for family and group of friends. Go for a walk or a bike ride. Many concerts during summer time for free. The view to the lake is great too.

  • A good place for a weekend stroll or leisure activities. It can get super crowded during the day, so I prefer going there for strolls after work. Walking along the Harbourfront at night after a cozy dinner is a good way to learn more about your date too ;-)
