Toronto Islands and Centreville Amusement Park

The Toronto Islands, a grand destination at most times, is also the home of the family amusement park named Centreville with over 30 rides and attractions such as the Centre Island Splash Pad which is ready to cool you down when the temps start going higher. The amusement park is open until Labour Day weekend in September.

You can get to the Islands by using the City's ferries which run to Hanlan's Point, Centre Island (home of Centreville) and Ward's Island. Summer weekends usually have massive lineups to get on a ferry so a popular alternative is the many water taxis that ply their trade along Queen's Quay. You can also take your bikes on both the ferries and the water taxis which allows for getting around on the large island park trails a lot faster, or you can rent bikes or canoes/kayaks and possibly looking cool biking around on the quad bikes.

Top attractions on the islands are the already mentioned Centreville Amusement Park (and Far Enough Farm) along with the many sandy beaches (including the clothes optional beach at Hanlan's Point, the split pier and restaurant area, the frisbee golf course and the great views of the cityscape.
