About Harbourfront Centre, Toronto
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
Always good to visit this place. Whole year book with lots of activities and events and most of them are free for everyone. Starting from food festival to music to skating to many more. Full of cultural and just the way it’s being organised keeping every detail intact it worth visiting here. Lakeside walk and music. Currently skating is highest interaction in this area with music. They provide heating area for skater which is badly missing at Nathan Phillips Square skating arena. Skate and get warm up. Good and drink option is near by another thing missing at Nathan Phillips Square. Sunset View is awesome and sound of water hitting the wood. Those birds and flight taking or landing at billy bishop airport. Totally worth it. Attached all photo and place is must go in my list
One of the nicest place in Toronto. Went there for Taiwan Fest for many years, and also worked at one of the booth in summer time. Nice and beautiful view, with band and musical performances. Delicious food at the food sections, and also have Art gallery nearby. 5 stars!!!
A place which hosts many events all round the year. In winters you can enjoy ice skating as it has a very big ring. On Canada day there is nice firework is displayed. There is a restaurant here also it has nice lake view.
Year round events open to the public, from outdoor skating rink in the winter to music, crafts and culture in the summer. There is always something going on. The best way to get here is on public transport from Union Station or walking if the weather is good.
Great place to hangout down town. Centre island a ferry away. Various summer time activities and winter time skating. Open air movies also feature during the summer. Easily accessible by street car from Union or a short walk
