The charming island neighborhoods of this park are Toronto’s favourite summer hangout. There are three main islands - Ward’s, Center, and Hanlans - and eight smaller named ones, and even more unnamed ones. The views of Toronto’s skyline, the many picnic spots and lots of outdoor sports amenities (Volleyball, Softball, Swimming, Boating, Disc Golf, Trails) are all standard, but there is more. Here’s a quick breakdown of what the island has to offer:
Some outfits provide fun and themed tours of the islands that you might want to check out on the park websites.

My wife and I usually try to visit the island once a year. It's a great spot to take your bikes and tour the whole island. There are are small restaurants a couple of bars and a nude beach if you so choose:). It's a great place to sit back and relax. We like to take a bottle of wine with us to sip on while sitting on the pier or on the grass watching the planes landing and taking off. If you stay until the last ferry leaves in the evening. You can see the cityscape all lit up. It's beautiful sight. Great place for young kids also. They have a petting zoo and small rides.
Convenient island hideaway just off the city. Some great beaches for swimming with surprisingly warm water in the summer. Some nice cafes within walking distance (though there could be more food & dining options). Nice bike & walking paths. A great little escape.
Toronto Island Park is a stunning location which is regularly accessible by boats from downtown Toronto. There are little beaches, gorgeous hiking trails, a few remote buildings and even a zoo to discover. The big city life isn't present there at all and it's the perfect spot to relax during the summer. You should spend an entire day there in order to discover all the sights at a smooth pace.
A little wet and flooded in places. Still got to enjoy the Rectory Cafe and the Island Cafe at Ward's Island. Get to see the real power of water.
We took the ferry from the Westin to the Island and really enjoyed our time there. The scenic walks and views of Toronto are gorgeous. The amusement park is a fun bonus for the kids.
