- The Power Plant Contemporary Art Gallery
- Harbourfront Stage

- 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

- 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 - Write a Review
It's a great place to go and chill out at, specially in the summer. Many activities take place there and there's Joe Bird, a fun spot to eat at, with some killer ice cream. If you're feeling a little fancier you can maybe hop onto one of the island tour cruises that are available on the boats there. If music's what you want, there's a variety of festivals that take place there. There's many parks where you can play ping pong or even play/watch a game of chess if that's your thing. Finally, if you're feeling artsy, walk around in the Power Plant where there's a glass blowing workshop and art exhibitions within the space.
This is our first favorite place to look around while traveling in Toronto. It is very close to the ferry for the Center Island which I just visited again this year. The Island was closed for a few weeks because the damages caused by the typhoon. And the regular Dragon Festival Race was cancelled this year because of that. But Harbourfront Centre stays the same, with boat rides available for the surrounding area. There is restaurants and stores in the main building. We always go to the Chinese restaurant on the second floor, where we can have a beautiful waterfront view sitting on the window seats.
Beautiful centre in front of the lake. Many restaurants and coffee shops. Recently renovated.. thanks to whoever thought of that. I liked the new interior design. Nice and clean eatery space and washrooms. Underground parking is available.
Great view of the water if you choose to sit down for a meal or a drink. You can pick up a harbour cruise of the Toronto Islands from here. Nice Shops and boutiques. Feels like you've left the city, while still close to downtown.
Very nice to walk around. Many shops and restaurants. Prices on the high end as this is Toronto downtown. Very crowded on weekends. You can go on a boat tour or take a water taxi to the islands. Wear comfortable shoes and expect to walk a lot. Very good area and the centre is nice and clean.
